About 3 weeks ago I was travelling internationally and lifting heavy objects and not sleeping, etc.
Pacemaker set at 71bpm and my heart rate jumped to 105 yet in sinus rhythm. I increased Sotalol from 80mg 2x day to 120 2x day.....and Metoprolol from 50 2x day to 75 in pm. Heart rate came down to 100-99 but no further.
Seems I'm stuck at 100-ish. EP is located in US and I'm in UK for next six months. I arranged an appt with Cardiologist but can't get appt for another three weeks.
I'm wondering if my pacemaker can be reset to reduce my heart rate. It's a Medtronic dual lead implanted in 2021 in the US.
