Bad experience on a tour.
Hi: I want to share with you a bad experience I had last week.
My wife and I were on a guided tour through Italy. For those not familiar with this, over there guides provide their "flock" with radio receivers walky-talky like, so that the guide proceeds with his/her explanations and the group gets the info even if they get mixed, as they usually do,with another crowd of tourists. I was given one of these things, hung it round my neck and we proceeded on a short slope towards the ruins of Pompeii. After a few steps, I felt a very strong discomfort and had to stop, almost out of breath.I reacted quickly, shut off and pocketed the receiver and my PM soon returned to normal, and I was able to follow the guide. (Incidentally, we had to call off the rest of the Pompeii tour due to a heavy downpour that drenched us all).
Well, I don't know how radio waves can interfere with pacemakers, but they certainly did.
I leave to our experts in electricity and waves to give an explanation, if there is one.
All the best.
You know you're wired when...
Your pacemaker interferes with your electronic scale.
I have had my pacer since 2005. At first it ruled my life. It took some time to calm down and make the mental adjustment. I had trouble sleeping and I worried a lot about pulling wires. Now I just live my life as I wish.
