High PVC-30% can these cause depression.

Dear tallej01 - it could be your low pulse rate and O2 levels are causing physical exhaustion and subsequent inability to do the activities you’re used to doing. I would think that would be a cause for depression.
I had a mild case of COVID in Feb 2023. Since then, I’ve been short of breath. In May, I was diagnosed with complete heart block and have had 2 pacemaker procedures. The latest implant in Aug. triggered atrial fib and subsequent heart failure. I know I’m depressed as I mourn the loss of the active person I used to be and don’t hold too much hope of getting her back.
I truly hope your ablation procedure goes well and return you to your previous state of health. Good luck!

Thank you, yes, I seem to be wearing down and have no desire to do even basic things at home, let alone doing enjoyable things. The depression does not necessarily stem from fear of the heart issue. I just wondered if there could be a correlation as both seemed to start the same time. Appt for Embolation the 18th of Oct. wish it was sooner. I feel like a slug and just want to be alone all day. I also have been having mild vertigo. Have a feeling it’s taking a lot out of me
