Numbness in the left arm

Hello there

I have just joined the group

Even though I don't have apacemaker as such I was implanted with a medteMedtREVEAL link heart monitor six weeks ago and have weakness and numbness iny left arm

Being a pianist this. Is causing me alot of trouble

Does anyone have anything similar or perhaps the same. Implant as me

Many thanks

Happy pianist

That's not normal and should be checked out asap.

Hi I had a reveal for 6 months before my pacemaker and never any numbness only around the wound site but that wore off 

I would contact your doctor where you had it fitted or call the pacemaker clinic

I agree.  Have it checked out ASAP.  It may be pinching a nerve in your shoulder or it may even be more serious.  You don't want this to be a permanent issue.  It's not normal. Get it checked out!
