Four Months Since PM Insert
So after having the St. Jude placed on 02.25.21 I joined this forum and posted my thoughts and fears which the responses that I received were excellent and helpful. Here we are 4 months later and I still am having some "MINOR" issues. This past Saturday night I was getting ready to go to bed and my heart felt like a flat tire being driven at 100 mph. I should've pressed the button on the monitor but didn't. It was a weird and horrible experience. I don't know what caused it but I do have an appointment with the dr who installed it this Wednesday. I dread even speaking to him becasue he always overtalks me and shoots down everything I bring up. If I DO NOT get satisfaction on this visit I WILL seek a second opinion. Here is his "Encounter Diagnosis" of what he found while doing the exploritory heart cath before the insertion of the PM.
Sick Sinus Syndrome (Final)
Atrioventricular Block, Second Degree (Final)
Syncope and Collaspe (Final)
Supraventricular Tachycardia (Final)
Ventricular Premature Depolarization (Final)
Atrial Premature Depolarization (Final)
Essential (primary Hypertension (Final)
Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus without Complications (Final)
Mixed Hyperlipidemia (Final)
Can someone give me the English version of all this? When I went for my first two interrigations they told me that the PM was only being used at 8%.
I am STILL having chest aches as I call them at the heart. I have ZERO cholesterol blockage. I can't figure out why the chest pains. If I didn't have them, I believe I could live with the minor issues/complaints of the PM.
PLEASE HELP me with some clarifications.
Thank you all
