Hi mimi, I wanted to tell you welcome to healing well forum, we are happy to have you. I just got a pacemaker myself this past September for Bradycardia, which is slow heart rate. On the visit to my cardiologist before last when they checked the pacemaker they downloaded all kinds of information on arrhythmias and A Fibs that had been going on. I have an autonomic disorder that causes me to be short of breath all the time and dizzy, and tired so I pretty much missed most of these feelings. There were a few times that I did know of some very sharp chest pain and couldn’t catch my breath, which were periods of A Fib. By the way I am 32 years old. So for now my doctor is monitoring it and reluctant to start meds or anything as I am already on a ton (literally) and have severe low blood pressure problems. And I'm not having the A Fib or arrhythmias all the time or on a consistent basis, just spastically. I don’t think my heart knows anymore what to do.
Anyway, I just wanted you to know that I understand what you’re going through. I don’t know what treatments or options there are for you out there but I am sure that some of our veteran members will be along shortly to post to you regarding it. Please do let us know how you get along. Take care
