Pain and short of breath
Hi everyone. :)
I'm new to having a pacemaker, so I'm really glad I found this forum.
I'm a 30 year old female and just got my first ever pacemaker inserted 2 weeks ago. I had to get it due to me fainting out of nowhere one day and turns out I have 3rd degree heart block.
The healing process has been rough. No one told me what's normal and not normal so I've been to the ER like 3 times so far only to be told everything is okay on both my EKG and pacemaker interrogation.
I had pretty heavy fluttering sensations all night where I could feel them on the bottom of my throat and it was very uncomfortable. All my tests looked fine though. Now I feel weak and out of breath, after walking a little bit I feel out of breath with a chest pain that goes to my back.
Did anyone else feel this way during the recovery period? I'm not sure if I'm being impatient by expecting to not feel much 2 weeks later.
