  • Pacemaker Check

    I do not understand the results of my first pacemaker check. I was told overall pacing is 76%, upper chamber 74% lower chamber 2% What does this mean? My pacemaker was installed because of a neurological illness not any heart defect.

    A-Fib

    This is probably experienced by quite a few people with A-Fib. I can go for months (or a year) feeling badly; Dizziness, palpitations, sweating, shortness of breath and a general discomfort in the chest. The last 2 months however, I've felt wonderful; no symptoms, energy returned and was exercising regularly. NO change in diet or meds. Have been taking Flecainide and Metoprolol for years, same dosage. Starting one day ago, I started to feel slightly dizzy, some palpitations and minor sweating....

    Low blood pressure

    My PB very low systematically, 80/60 or even 76/58. I m 62 y/o woman, very active, working in the cardiology office as a stress test technician. With this low BP I live, exercise and do all my lively activities, just feeling little light headed. I drink plenty of water, eat little salt in my diet. I thoght that too little salt causes such low BP. Then I started eat more salty food, but it helps only for short period of time. Later in day I have BP of 80/62 again. What can be a problem?

    Bloating feeling on my body

    Something strange has been happening to my body for the past 4 months and I can't seem to diagnose it. No-one on the internet seems to have the same symptoms as me, and I can't find anything similar to my symptoms online. I have been having palpitations 24/7 for the past 6 months, even when I'm not aware of them they are there. Heartbeat is not fast or too slow but it pounds very hard and moves my whole body with it. It almost feels like something is clogged and blood is trying to push....
