Hi  Similar to previous post. Being a 'newby' have a lot to learn.

Reflux (GERD) seems to be worse since implantation. Could the problem be related to the new pacemaker settings and is there a fix ?  First pacemaker check due 30th Aug.

Many thanks   Neil

I can't think of how a pacemaker -which only keeps the heart beating at a set rate -could affect GERD. Med changes, increased anxiety or changes in diet could though. 

Copy and paste this old link with a discussion of this here:

Your signature looks like an EKG.

I just want to share about the quality of life after my pacemaker, and hopefully increase awareness that lifestyles do not have to be drastically modified just because we are pacemaker recipients.
