New PM muscle twitch/spasm with each heartbeat
Hi. I just received my first PM, a Medtronic Percepta Quad biventricular 3 lead CRT-P device. It was implanted this past Wednesday, Sept 22nd. Since I woke from the surgery, I have noticed that every heartbeat causes my abdomen and chest to twitch or jump. I had mentioned this to the nurses while I was in the hospital, and none of them seemed concerned. Today, after poking around online, I don't think it's normal. So I contacted my EP this moring to ask if this was normal thing or not and he is having me come into the clinic tomorrow. I wonder if this is just me being overly sensitive to actually feeling my heartbeat now, or if there is a problem. I've dealt with bradycardia for so long that I am just not used to having a steady 60bpm and the lbbb was pretty severe pre-implant, so my ventricles were beating so far out of sync they weren't pushing much blood. Any others have this and is it normal? Is a lead out of place? Is there just a setting to change on my device? Thanks in advance for the help.
BTW I am a 59 year old male with lbbb, bradycardia, and NYHA class 3 stage c heart failure.
