In Certain Cases Elderly Person Feels Unwell
My mom has tachicardia. She gets tired fast and can't do chores for long. 7 years ago she had ICD installed. She has double chamber pacemaker from St Jude and I think it is model Endurity DR PM2160 or PM2162. I am not sure.
She is currently trialing hearing aid Unitron Moxi B7-R RIC and she experiences increased heart rate and feels not so well only when connected to a tablet through Bluetooth. The hearing aid is at least 16 centimeters away from ICD which is supposed to be safe distance from interference. Moreso the hearing aids are too small to cause interference so I am not sure why she feels that way.
Another concern is she feels unwell when she undergoes her ICD checks first semi-anually and now yearly. When technician places wireless loop on her neck and starts testing she feels unwell during and after the procedure. She describes unpleasant feeling in her chest. We tend to sit several minutes after the test for her to feel normal before we leave medical center.
So I am wondering if anyone else feels like that, especially during testing of ICD? Is this normal? I also wonder why would she feel unwell with hearing aid only when it is connected to tablet through Bluetooth.

My ICD/pacer is not a burden. I still play tennis and golf.
