I am going nuts with my ICD I already had a lead revision and the settings changed around a few times but I still have like spasms in my diaphragm bad i have them all during the day and night but it disturbs me mostly in my sleep the doctors said they cant do anything more. Has anyone had this problem, or I am nuts for letting it get to me. I have such bad anxiety I think from it
Oh my, I had the fluttering in my heart and the area around it after I had my pacemaker implanted but it gradually got better. But I do have really bad spasms that run up the left side of my back and in my lower right leg. What I have discovered is that some nerve damage is permanent and some does clear up after a time. The time it takes to clear up depends on how much damage is there. Hopefully if you give it more time it may clear up on its own. Don't forget to take care with your left arm if the Doctor implanted the pacemaker in your left side. I had some problems with healing because I kept forgeting to keep my left arm down to not raise it higher than my shoulder cause that stretches the leads and may cause them to be pulled out. Good Luck to you...
