Had a medtronic pacemaker placed for tachy-Brady syndrome, have pounding heart beats, headaches. Should be concerned ?

Hi I recently had a medtronic pacemaker places for tachy-Brady syndrome . I am 33. Since I have had this pacemaker I keep getting odd sensations when laying on my sides or even just sitting up. My heart will few like it is pounding really hard or skipping beats. I also get a pretty bad headache with it. My addrs1 dual chamber dual lead pacemaker was place on the 15th of January! Should I be concerned? Also my pacemaker was placed subpectoral on the right side and it keeps moving into my armpit area. Just would like your opinion in what I should do or what could be causing the symptoms. Thanks

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

You should see your doctor.
The machine may need some fine adjustment - depending on the event monitor.
It is question of time, for it to get fixed in place.
generally, there may not be anything uncontrollable - your doctor may correct in a few minutes....

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck

Hi I was diagnosed with Tachy Brady syndrome several years ago. I also have a normally irregular heartbeat. I often get palpitations that go away quickly with a cough. Today at work my heart started pounding out of nowhere..resting. AP 150 BP 140/90 RR 32…that lasted about 15 minutes and then slowly went back to normal. My normal resting HR is 60 with low BP. I still feel a bit light headed, but otherwise normal. My question is with my Cardiologist not in town until Friday should I see a regular dr tomorrow or if all else is normal could I wait until Friday?

My son was just diagnosed with possible tachy-brady syndrome. and some tachycardia. He is a healthy 16 year old who works out three or more times a week. He stays away from most bad foods, with the occasional splurge, and refuses to even drink tea, unless there is nothing else to drink. He does take vitamin supplements to help with his body s active life style, in case there is something missing from his meals. My question is what other reasons would there be for my son to have this condition?

I have been on Coumadin for 3 years. In December of 2013 I had a complete knee replacement and the surgeon put me on Xarelto. I want to go back on Coumadin because I feel more confident if I know the numbers of how thin/thick my blood is each month. Can I switch back to Coumadin (Warfarin) without any bad side effects? I do have a pacemaker and also have occasional episodes of atrial fib.
