Pacemaker and nerve problems
I was wondering if anyone has ever experienced nerve pain or damage as a result of the pacemaker and how it was located. For example, in the shoulder area, arm, and or even your hand?
I am a thin person so my pacemaker does not look nice and smooth on my skin... you can tell it's there. I do notice my shoulder isn't as flexible as my right one so occasionally I can feel like a little discomfort in the muscles or nerves.. not on the entire arm. Simply some areas depending if I am holding a heavy pan to wash or leaning on my left elbow.. or typing too much.. it won't last long but it's noticeable that it bothers sometimes and I am wondering can this be because of the pacemaker pressing on some nerves..

I have a well tuned pacer. I hardly know I have it. I am 76 year old, hike and camp alone in the desert. I have more energy than I have had in a long time. The only problem is my wife wants to have a knob installed so she can turn the pacer down.
