Lead slack or lead migration?????????something.
Got my pacemaker almost 4 years ago. Last few(well 8) months have been having problems. Lots of noise on my 12 lead ecg., chest pain when I raise my arm on PM side. A lot of ventricular fusion beats(PM and own heart beating at same time) with no block... about 4 weeks ago, I started having ventricular bigeminy and afib but also a flutter. Non of these episodes are recording, I do catch them on my kardia 6lead and they are confirmed. So, I was curious and went back and looked at my xray from day after pm was placed. There is tons of slack in the Atrial lead and plenty in the his bundle lead. Then as time progresses the slack is getting less and less. Now the lead is pretty taut. So I'm wondering if this is my problem. Oh and I can now tell when I am atrial pacing. It's very forceful beat. Not pacs it's sinus rhythm. But with pacing.
Has anyone ever had this problem?
You know you're wired when...
You can hear your heartbeat in your cell phone.
It made a HUGE difference in my life. Once I got it, I was finally able to run, and ride my bike long distances.
