recent pacemaker insertion
I was recently diagnosed with sick sinus syndrome based on EKG and 30 day event monitor. I am a long term endurance athelete. My heart rate dropped down to 29 BPM, though I felt no symptoms. I saught consult as my heart rate stopped going to target rates while running and biking and having to back off of my workouts. It seems that things happened very quickly and before I knew it, I was having a medtronic PPM implanted. I did not know that it was reactive to motion and not my breathing. I had shared with my Dr. that I was very active. I am now suffering from PPM remorse as I feel I should have had a minute ventilation PPM inserted. My next appointment is on Sept 3rd.......where I am hoping to have many questions answered........
You know you're wired when...
You have a shocking personality.
I'm a runner, mountain climber, kayaker, snow skier, bicycler and scuba diver. The only activity among those that I'm not yet cleared to do is scuba diving, and when I am cleared, I'll be limited to diving to 50 feet.
