on going problem with double pacemaker
I had a double pace-maker put in 18 months ago - took 18 months and finally a loop recorder inserted that told them my heart was stopping for 14 seconds whilst I was asleep. Right from the start I have had a pain middle of my chest - now and then to start with - I have been back 4 times to pacemaker place and each time they say the p.maker is fine working perfectly. Paid to go back to heart consultant twice as it is quite painful now - does not happen when I am doing things - mainly when sat reading or at comp. He did admit he was just not sure what it was as all the tests I had 2 years ago prior to them realising what was happening showed my heart was fine. So he put me on 2.5mg of beta-blocker which did work for 2 months when the pain went. Then it came back 2 weeks ago so now on double that dose - no idea what to do if that fails also. I am just wondering if anyone else has had this happen? Please do not get all technical !! -- I am 76 year's old so not very up on tech stuff! In everything else I am fine and do not take any other medications.

I am just now 40 but have had these blackouts all my life. I am thrilled with the pacer and would do it all over again.
