I have had my pacemaker since 2005 when I was 19. I was diagnosed with SVT and in the process of an ablation procedure the AV node was damaged when they attempted to remove the spare one I had been born with because they were right on top of each other. The day after the procedure I experienced excruciating chest pain and had to be given morphine and sedated. Since then I have been having bouts of angina following times when I may not get enough sleep for 3 or 4 days, or whenever I attempt to start jogging. When I say not enough sleep, I would usually get around 5-6 hours for those stretches that seemed to trigger an episode, and when I attempt jogging, I only go for 60 second intervals and walk for around 2 minutes in between, for a total of 20 minutes. So, I don't think I'm attempting to do too much at once because I still feel like I can go much longer by the time I end my routine.
I have informed my cardiologist about the situation but the most he has ever done is put me on low doses of Atenolol and Lysinopril, and tell me to take ibuprofen and take it easy until the pain subsides. Needless to say I am fed up with this after 7 years and want to be free to improve my health without the overshadowing fear of "will this workout lead to a 2 week bout of chest pain".
So my question is this, has anyone else had similar symptoms or know what could cause such symptoms? Any input would be much appreciated, and I thank you for the time you take to respond.
