I found out Friday that my pacemaker lead from my BIOTRONIK went from bipolar to unipolar on its own due to changes of impedance. I am having it switched back ( I believe) Tuesday.
Maybe coincidental but before knowing this happened I woke up Friday and my pacemaker area felt weird- not pain but sore.
My heart feels fluttery since Friday, which is not normal. Today I got super dizzy and had to go to the floor quickly, which is also not normal.
My minimal research and knowledge says that the lead might be failing.
The battery was replaced in November and leads have been in since 2013. Any information on this would be appreciated.
You know you're wired when...
Batteries not included takes on a new meaning.
My cardiologist is brilliant and after lots of trial and error got me running. I finished this years London Marathon in 3hrs 38 minutes.
