ICD seems to be getting hot
I received my ICD 5 weeks ago as a preventative measure. I have CHF with EF of 25% I have been healing very well but the past 2 weeks i have felt burning around one end of my ICD. I chalked it up to possibly nerve pain. But it is now getting hot to the touch, and will swell quite a bit. Its gotten so uncomfortable that ive put ice packs on it. I also get quite strong palpitations when this happens. My electrophysiologist said he has never heard of this and wants me to record the episodes for 6 weeks. I am really worried, and wondering if anyone else has had this issue? I have a Medtronics ICD. Thank you.
