Hi Josh,
I have at times felt the tingling and general achyness in my arm. It comes and goes. Is there pain? If there is pain, I'd definatly get it looked at now. Better safe than sorry. It seems a lot of people with pms have something going on with the arm. It's not always a reason for concern. But you have to be safe. I'll also be praying for you,
Rusty

I want you to know that I've experienced this tingling feeling in my arm many times. I wouldn't work myself up but if you don't feel safe then call your doctor, it's better to be safe then sorry. I hope you feel better and I'll pray for you tonight. Take care and God bless you.

I have had tingling many times since the pacemaker was implanted. My doctor said it was caused by the pacemaker affecting nerves that go through to the arm.
He said if there is no pain not to worry about it.

Hi Josh,
I am curious to know how long you have had your pm? I have asked the doctors a lot of questions about the arm hurting and going numb. The most common reason for this feeling to happen is the nerves are healing or it is resting on a nerve. It could also be from the voltage being high, or some adjustments need to happen. I found that the ER Visits became a waste of my time because they would have to call in the heart center anyways to run tests so now I just call my heart clinic and ask to talk to a nurse about the pain. They know me by name now and know who to transfer me too. I would try to get a visit with your dr if the pain continues or develops. I wish you luck and am keeping you in my thoughts.

The pacer systems are really very reliable. The main problem is the incompetent programming of them. If yours is working well for you, get on with life and enjoy it. You probably are more at risk of problems with a valve job than the pacer.
