Electrical shock

So while I was working the other day painting a house for a friend I went to move the outlet out of the way when I felt an electrical shock in my hand. Could this have harmed my pacemaker?? It definitely scared me but I’m ok now that I know of just want to make sure this didn’t harm my PM 


No worries

The electrical shock didn't go through your pacemaker so it didn't do any damage.  You're still breathing and your heart rate is OK, correct?  Just try to make it a regular habit NOT to get electrical shocks.  

You know you're wired when...

Your pacemaker interferes with your electronic scale.

I wasn't really self-conscious about it. I didn't even know I had one until around six or seven years old. I just thought I had a rock in my side.
