I'm looking for insight or tips on recovery. I get tired quickly so I tend to do short workouts. Right now my chest is very sore.

I do not have an implantable heart monitor but as a PT I have dealt with clients that have had pacemakers and other implanted electrical devices.  Not knowing what the device is for(correct an arrhythmia, stimulate or slow the heart rate etc.) I would be hesitant to provide any advice other than to consult with your cardiologist and discuss your concerns and goals with exercise and abide by there recommendations.

It's just an internal monitor or loop recorder. I have mild mvp (mitral valve prolapse), silent migraines & insulin resistance. These are believed to be related to why I've been fainting the last 10yrs. The hope is the internal monitor will catch or prove it is or isn't my heart once & for all. Only restrictions are to stop if I have a symptom or warning sign. I do interval training because I get tired or weak quickly. If I get tunnel vision or aura skip that day.

Thanks for some more insight. Keep with the short interval training and monitor how you feel. If you do arm exercises they will tax your heart more than if you do leg exercises, especially if you do over head work. I would look at how your body responds to simple one muscle exercises,(ie leg curls, biceps, triceps) before getting into complex lifting that involves multiple muscle groups such as squats, lunges or burpees. Once you know what your body can handle begin to progress. With a heart condition it is recommended to work out between 50%-60% of your heart rate...

Scarlet, my 14 yo son has (infrequent) silent migraines; had never heard of them before.  Do yours have anything to do with your other health issues? MY mom has a calcified mitral valve, diabetes, pulmonary hypertension, so there's some family history of heart and other health issues. Hopefully your heart is okay.
