Pacemaker Issues
I have had a dual chamber pacer since I was 25. I'm 54 now. Six months ago, my NEW cardiologist shut off the ventricular side because the leads eroded & was no longer pacing. Since that event, I have recurring episodes of feeling a strain (tightness) after any type of activity. Sometimes, labored breathing. A recent stress test showed no abnormalities. Nevertheless, I'm always uncomfortable, whether laying down or not, however my cardiologist insists it's my imagination. Does anyone have advice on my options? In this state of NC, there are limited cardiologists. Most doctors have grouped together into one care unit. It's not a simple matter of finding another cardiologist, as in my home state of Colorado, where most doctors are still independent. I relocated almost two years ago and have regretted moving ever since.

I am going to give you some great advise here...you need to re post this onto either the Medhelp heart disease forum or on the heart rhythm sites....they are very fast moving and many members have pacers and i have seen them posting about the same thing and have been given some great advice......good luck.....this is not really a pacer site so i want you to go to a forum where accurate ideas can be tossed at you...good luck
