heart racing and pounding feeling in chest
Hi, I'm new to this forum and so glad I found this group to share some of my feelings . I was recently implanted about 4 days ago, a dual chamber pacer for high grade second degree AV block ( Mobitz type 2) occurring during exercise with HR over 120. I also have tachy brady syndrome wherein my HR sometimes keeps rising even on minor exertions like walking up a flight of stairs and then stay high around 120s for a good half hour before gradually slowing down to baseline. I get the pounding feeling when HR goes over 120 or so. With the pacer in place, I still feel about the same when the rate goes up. Does it mean the Pacer is not properly set up yet to handle higher rates or it's expected to be so? Appreciate any advice.Thanks

Batteries not included takes on a new meaning.
I have an ICD which is both a pacer/defib. I have no problems with mine and it has saved my life.
