Anyone else with an implantable heart monitor?
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.
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.
