Left arm and shoulder pain

I'm now 2 months out from my implant of a pacemaker and I've really started to notice a lot of pain in my shoulder and left arm. To the point it is a burning  pain. My left arm is often weak or not as strong as previously. When I ask my docs, they just tell me to take otc pain meds. I've also noticed that on really cold days, I ache more in my shoulder and site area. I have been in weather temps the last couple days of temps under 28 and the pain gets really bad and will linger for a couple days.  Anyone else have issues due to cold weather? Anyone still having continued pain in their shoulder and arm?

How much did you use your arm when you were first healing? It's possible it's just lack of use combined with new scar tissue. If that's the case, physical therapy should help.

I go next Monday for follow up and I'll ask about therapy.
