I had a dual pacemaker fitted two weeks ago. I am getting occasional "pain" - more discomfort rather than win in fact - in the middle of my chest, rather like indigestion
Hello. I'm Dr. Phil, licensed and practicing internist. Excellent service is my goal.
Have you tried any indigestion pills?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

No I haven't, as I have never had indigestion before. However, I would imagine this is what it feels like! Seems strange when I never had indigestion before the pacemaker. Just a coincidence?

Did you start any other meds?
Why was the pacemaker put in?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
Arrhythmia (pulse rate down to 35, but now up to 95). Feeling fine otherwise. I know I have to be careful not to lift my left arm too high for 4-6 weeks, but if I had done this accidentally during sleep could I gave "moved" one of the wires? I am probably feeling over-sensitive, but also worried because I gave to take a 2 hour flight tomorrow.
I think you need an ekg to be sure this isn't cardiac pain
