I was switching a wall electric outlet and got shocked . Apparently I did not turn off the proper circuit breaker. Should I be concerned?

concerned about the pacemaker?  no?  about getting electrocuted...yes

I recommend something that I heard hearsay, a kind of lineman/persons rule.  keep one hand in your pocket, the biggest danger is the current crossing the heart (from hand to hand across the chest) so hand in pocket at best its hand to foot.  I prefer to touch with the back of my hand or finger first dont want to have your hand muscles contract and close and hold the exposed wire/cable.  or even better, just use a meter/tester before handling and you wont get shocked.
