Fast heart rate under a minute
Hello everyone. I have a dual chamber pacemaker for a complete heart block... and there have been a few times during the past year where I'll wake up in the middle of night really thirsty with a dry throat and I'll sit up to have some water but all of a sudden my heart rate will go a bit fast and I can feel my heart pounding on my chest. This usually last 30 seconds to a minute. And maybe has happened like 7/8 times in the last year... I have told my cardiologist and he says that can happen at times but I shouldn't be too worried. So it happened last night... and i was wondering if this happens to anyone else with a pacemaker and how do you cope with it?
i do suffer from generalized anxiety disorder so I tend to worry and overthink a bit...
