My cards doc says I tingle from the placement of the pacemaker over a nerve enriched part of the chest.  I had new devices implanted into the pec muscle as the first would ride up and hit the clavicle.  But I tingle constantly from head to toe.  Does anyone else have this problem?  


Head to toe?

I'm not a medical professional, but it's hard for me to see how a pacemaker would cause head to toe tingling. In the chest, yes. Head to toe, no.

Because getting a pacemaker is so far out of the ordinary to most people, it's easy to associate every single thing that happens to the pacemaker. But that's a thinking "rabbit hole." It will only lead you away from the answer.

Your pacemaker isn't the cause of everything. It isn't even the cause of most things.



You know you're wired when...

You have a little piece of high-tech in your chest.
