Still feeling Sinus Node Pauses
okay, a lot of you all are super supportive, and there/here when I need you.
As I've explained before, I suffer from Sinus Node Pauses, for around 18 years while on active duty in the United States Army I would go through dizzy spells. Cardiologists had a hard time getting to the bottom of my underline condition, often blaming me for my complaints. Too much coffee, drinking, athletic supplements were often pointed out as my own doings...meanwhile it was my nodes failing and only discovered once I was fitted with a loop recorder.
I could always feel my sinus nodes coming on, very hot and flush feeling on neck and overall feeling of panic...then I'd get dizzy and either pass out, or panic and put my fingers to my neck to check my pulse, often i was seen doing this, it comforted me somehow.
So, I was fitted with my PM in June, lots of PVCs for first 72 hours post op. My heart was pissed off after being poked around with. The following months...I can still feel my pauses coming on, and I still feel a slight pause and my PM starts to work, I truly feel the node corrections as I feel like the dizzy spell is beginning to happen, but I breath and have a little faith and my device does its job.
My question to my sinus node pause friends out there, does this sound familiar to you at all? Are any of you still feeling that feeling of pauses and feel your heart make its correction after your PM works?
Disclaimier: please don't tell me it's impossible that I'm feeling this, just because you're not...doesn't mean some people do. I definitely do! I'm looking for support.
Maybe I need an adjustment to my PM to work between beats quicker?
Anyway, thank you guys for encouragment of any kind. Very scary and frustrating!
