Tweaking in defibrillator.

Post by Leah » December 27th, 2015, 3:40 pm

Hello All
Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. For like a couple days now it feel like my defibrillator made a twisting. Doesn't hurt just uncomfortable . Is this the settings problem?

I don't understand your question. Tweaking or twisting? Twisting would indicate moving and I don't think that is what you meant. Can you explain?

i dont understand the tweaking bit either leah....i just asked you on facebook is it pain your feeling in your chest? you just had the device replaced right? so perhaps what your feeling is a settling ........every time i got mine replaced id for a while feel it a bit different at times for a while......and i could never describe how it actually felt...but i think now maybe it was inflamation around the site and the device settling down..and the device settling into a spot it wanted to be in.....

It feels like when you go in for a check up and get the jumping feeling when they test the device. I don't have that jumping feeling but feels like it.
