do i really need it????
OK..im 21 i have genetic long qt"s type 1 and recently went to my doctor cause of some pain i was having thinking my icd was just pacing extra hard,and my nurse told me the icd is just sitting there....sitting there? i mean im not anxious for a shock or anything but she then explained to me that i will not receive pacing until my heart rate goes up to 100 and that i will not get socked until it goes up to 200 and the usual they say and as it monitors goes only up to 80-90 when im walking although i do take things slowly cause i occasionally feel faint...so was it really necessary to get this? call me naive but its very uncomfortable to have,but i really don't know what to do can i actually have it taken out?,but then im worried i might need it cause of my heart beats
