Fell Flat on My Chest
One week ago, I took a hard fall. I went down on my knee caps, my arms flew out so I did not break the fall, and I landed flat on my chest. The following day, I had some discomfort to the left of my pacemaker, towards my armpit. Each day the pain has become greater and has now traveled towards the center of my chest. It is painful to cough, laugh, sneeze, blow my nose, reach with my left arm, and take a deep breath. At first it felt like someone punched me. Could I have damaged the muscle that the pacemaker is attached to? I have an appointment with my cardiologist in a few days, but my hubby wants me to go to the ER or urgent care center. I am less likely to hit the panic button, but I don't want to be stupid either. Does anyone have a similar experience/pain? Thanks.
You know you're wired when...

But I think it will make me feel a lot better. My stamina to walk is already better, even right after surgery. They had me walk all around the floor before they would release me. I did so without being exhausted and winded the way I had been.
