Experienced brady cardia from end of January til June 11 of this year when single chamber pacemaker was inserted. Adjustment was made in July, because my heart rate never got much above 60. Since then, heart rate spikes, to over 100 several times a day, but when I push the button on my interrogator, they call me back and act as if I am over reacting. I feel dizzy and a little short of breath, and the HR is often over 100, rising to133, and 149 with little or no exertion. I know what I feel, and the HR is confirming that on my pulse oximeter. It doesn't lasst long and usually goes baack down. My cardiologist and the device clinic are 90 miles away, and when I call the device clinic, they tell me to go to the ER, because it may be my blood pressure. My bood pressure is just fine. It seems to me that they are dismissive and treat me like I'm just an elderly person who over reacts and is bothersome.
