Pain

I have had constant pain since implantation that feels like I have a Nail lodgged in the muscle but that's not where it stops if only it were. At random points in time the site feels as if the nail was now funneling electricity from a Tenns unit into the area or it feels as if someone has struck said phantom nail hard enough to remind me the area is painful.

The first level of this pain has been so constant now that I can ignore it basicly blocking it out till it reminds me of it's presense.

It's the other two that are issues because they can make me make noise indicating I am in pain a state I like to keep to myself.

I can't count how many times I've told my General and Cardio Doctors about my pain but the answer is always that they have no explanation, or the device is putting pressure on the nerve that passes through the area. 

For this they offer no solution so I have for the time being ceased telling them about it even though it is getting worse. Now I have a numbness from my left elbow to just under my jaw.

Sorry if I have bored you but thought what the hell I can complain to strangers

No excuse

There is no reason to suffer like this. If your doctors blow you off, fire them. There are plenty of good ones who actually care about their patients. You're wasting your time and money on quacks. You deserve answers, answers that point to solutions.

In the end, your life and health is up to you. Take charge of it.

Definitely time to seek a second opinion. Have they verified that the leads are attached tight? Physical therapy? Discussion of moving it? There are options, but first they have to take you seriously so that's your first step.
