I just wanted to let you all know that we have found the culprit causing the sensation from my Medtronic PM. It is so simple, I should have thought of this first. It turns out that the sensation was caused by the seat belt crossing over my PM. The Medtonic PM is so much more sensitive that the ones I have before. Just the least little touch or tap causes a vibration of sorts. With the seat belt crossing over it, there was a constant interference the whole time I was driving. I am so glad t...
I needed an MRI for my lower back -- a lumbar scan -- and got it. You need to be persistent, you need to know your facts, and you may need to be prepared to feel some pulse changes without freaking out. But it can be done.
I managed to do all three. The pacemaker was undamaged, according to pre- and post-MRI pacemaker diagnostics. I am not recommending this procedure, just saying I had one and suffered no ill effects. I'll get to that in a couple of paragraphs, but some background fi...
Thanks for fixing the problem!! I can now read the comments again~ thanks for all you do!!

I went for my 6 month pacer check up a week ago. The Doc was happy that I had no dizzynes or passouts for the last 6 months. I Have Vasovagal Syncope. So I asked him if I could ride a roller coaster while vacationing in Las Vegas. He said OK as long as the belting system did not hit the pacer. So although a bit apprehensive I tried the coaster at New York New York. It has a full loop and a barrel roll that turns you upside down. Well all went very well it was great fun and I had no problems. It...

I think you'll find the reading outrageously fascinating.

Having a Medtronic pacemaker myself, I became concerned, reading posts involving Medtronic recalls. I did a little research, and came up with this information.
The Sigma Series is the latest in a line of defective Medtronic medical devices; They include:
AT500 pacing system ( mine )
Kappa 600/700 Dual chamber ( D, DR, VDD.)
Thera Implantable Pulse Generators models 7940/41/42/50-- 8940/41/42/48.

I too am having a problem reading the comments on the posts. Is there some difficulty with the site? Are others also experiencing this? Thanks for any help!
I also can't see any comments behind posts. This started yesterday sometime~ has something changed????
I don't see replies (although it says there are 4) to My Active Topic question. What gives???
I walked into a store that I frequent the other day and set off alarms as I walked in and again on the way out. Now the store has had this type of security for some time and it hasn't been an issue before. So... I walked in again, alarms - and out again and... alarms! Out of curiosity, I spoke to one of the store managers and he told me that they had installed new security pylons and would check with the security company that did the install to make sure that the settings were not harmful a...
I too have been trying to access the comments from different avenues. No luck. One thing though, you stsated that it is post the number of comments inaccurately,I don't beleive that is so. It is adding up the posts correctly ,it is just not allowing the viewing of those posts. IO trieed it on one and counted to see if the amount of the posts would change and it did. Something happened with the processing of the post and when it is going through the "spam" part possible thtat it is storing info....
I posted a comment on "Active Topic" message and the number of comments went from 3 to 4 ---but my comment didn't show up. Other people private messaged me and said the same thing was happening to them on that topic. (I originally posted that topic).
It's no big deal and maybe it's working now.
Hello -- I'm looking into the "invisible comments" right now.
Well, I've tested posting comments from a number of different computers, operating systems, and so forth. They are going up without any difficulty. It seems that there is a bug in the code somewhere that is inaccurately representing the number of comments. I'm going to spend some time this evening and track that particular bug down and stamp on it. Firmly.
I to am unable to read any comments. When cilicking on anyone's message it will show the number of comments but nothing else.
What has happened to the comments? I can't find them to read. There must be trouble on this web site. Judy
OK. I've seen some posts back in the day about trouble sleeping and positions you sleep in with your pm. Pre-pm I always was a side sleeper (on my right side). Since having my pm implanted, I sleep SO differently! Differently meaning good and bad and just plain different than before. I'm all over the place! At times one position is comfortable then the next minute it's not.
Anyways...I want to sleep on my stomach from time to time (I used to do this pre-pm) but avoid doing so...
