Fast heart rate all night with biotronik CL S
Hi can anyone help, I got my Cls activated for the first time yesterday after starting off with just basic levels at 60 during the day, 50at night which was an improvement but didn't give me the quality of life I hoped for. I have chronic bradycardia due to brain injury but can mount a good response to exercise, am just not so good sitting still and can't stand in one place without fainting which is why I got the PM.
The Cls function was sold to me like it would be the dogs bollocks for my situation and in the daytime yesterday I really felt good, much better hr than I would have had on the previous settings, able to sweep my garden, it was all great until I went to bed.
I have been kept awake all night with a racing pounding heart, going randomly from 60s to my maximum of 80, which thank God it can't go any higher. I have never taken drugs but I am pretty sure this is what a couple of lines of cocaine before bed feels like.
I am so disappointed as I cannot sacrifice sleep to have a healthy heart rate by day, so am going to call the clinic as soon as it opens.
Can anything be done about this or is it just a choice between Cls or go back to basic rates with a night time one that lets me rest but a daytime one with no responsiveness?
Any ideas would be much appreciated.
My base rate is currently 55 but I have been nowhere near that all night. Max rate 80. Sensitivity medium. I am not sure about resting rate control but think it is 20.
I just don't understand why it is going the same or higher at night when lying quietly in bed than if I am up and active?
