Hi everybody I am new to this club, just wondering if anyone else suffers with an intermittent ticking sensation on the opposite side of the pacemaker, I had a dual pacemaker fitted in March this year and have been getting this ticking ever since, I have mentioned this on my check up appointments they seem to make alterations but I don't seem to be getting anywhere, there was a mention of the blue lead being faulty and maybe it being switched off, any advice or ideas that you may have I would appreciate your help. 

Many thanks

You are talking about feeling a muscle twitching involuntarily, aren't you? Sometimes people refer to that as a tic.

You say the sensation is on the "opposite side of the pacemaker." I assume you mean the other side of the chest.  Neither the pacemaker nor the leads are going past the center of your chest. Even if a lead were "faulty," it wouldn't be on the opposite side of the pacemaker.

I'm sure the sensation is real, and probably annoying, but it's hard to imagine how it's being caused by the pacemaker or anything the pacemaker is doing.

I am not aware of colored leads. You mentioned a blue one. Hmmm

I wonder if an xray could be taken -it would show if any leads have moved. 



You know you're wired when...

You’re officially battery-operated.
