Customer Question

I am a 44 year old male that has a pacemaker since 2008. Today I felt a fluttering in my neck as if my pacemaker was being tested like when I'm in the office very frequently today. Should I be concerned?

Thank you for your question.

Yes, you should certainly have this evaluated further to be sure your pacemaker is working fine and to make sure you are not having any rhythm problem with your heart.

So I would definitely recommend that you be seen.

If you have persistent symptoms I would recommend being seen in the emergency.

Let me know if you have more questions.
