Weird sensations in device area last few days
Hi. First time posting, thanks for letting me be a member of the group. I have a Medtronic ICD for nonsustained polymorphic VT and electrical storm in the setting of stress. Stable, taking flecainide and nadolol daily. Recent checkups and stress tests have been A-OK, and I have mostly forgotten the ICD is there. But, over the last 4-5 days, I am getting random tickles in the ICD area. Sometimes below the ICD, sometimes to the side, etc. These weird sensations only last 1/2 second or so, and there seems to be no rhyme or reason. It's as if someone is just gently touching the area with the tip of their finger. Not painful, but definitely new. There is no consistency of time, place, activity. My heart rate is fine and I have no symptoms of anything other than my normal stupidity. Reported it to the cardiology office this morning, sent an ICD reading, but heard nothing back yet. Anyone ever felt these types of sensations? Thank you.

I love this new part of me, and very, very thankful that this technology exists and I know that it's all only going to get better over time.
