I had a pacemaker installed in 2003. Prior to that time after working out I would get the feeling that I was going to faint. Had the pacemaker installed & it seemed to clear up the problem, however it has resurfaced. Just had a stress test & it appears that my heart rate drops suddenly after exercise. So my pulse may go from 130 down to 60. A tech from Metronic was there & observed it. He made some adjustments, however both he and my cardiologist have never seen this problem. Does anyone know anything about it? Is it part of "pacemaker syndrome"?
