numbness in arms and fingers post workout
I am 34 year old female.
I have had my ICD implant about 2 years back and was overweight at that time. I had dilated cardiomyopathy for about 5 years now and I am on medications. Post-op, I started exercising and started loosing weight. I am now at a good weight and still exercising every day.
But recently I noticed that my arms and fingers are getting very very numb post workout. The numbness does not go away unless I have a hot water shower. And numbness is there on both cold and hot days. I don't really know what is causing this numbness. During colder nights my fingers and toes go extremely pale and I feel as if they are made of ice blocks. It feels as if something is causing to cut off blood supply briefly at few times of the day.
Any experiences or suggestions are much appreciated. I am going to visit my cardiologist in a couple of months time but until then...your help is really important.
Have a great day guys and girls...

I just want to share about the quality of life after my pacemaker, and hopefully increase awareness that lifestyles do not have to be drastically modified just because we are pacemaker recipients.
