increased heart rate
I have had my pacemaker for 6 weeks now and overall I have been doing pretty well. The input from this this group has been a tremndous help. In the first week or so I could really feel the pacemaker at times. It all seemed to settle down. I have increased my activity through the weeks and feeling ok. Today, for no apparant reason, I seem to be really feeling my pacemaker and my heart rate is up around 80-85 without activity. My pacemaker settng is currently set for 60 min. I still have much to learn about settings. I have my 6 week follow up next week. Has anyone had symptoms of increased heartrate and the sensation of felling the pacing like this? I have been feeling so good about it all in the last few weeks, I am not liking this feeling. It's quite hot here in Southern CA today (99F) so I don't know if that might have something to do with it. I appreciate any thoughts!
