Pretty sure this is normal, but..

Does anyone notice weakness in the arm on the side where your PM is? Sometimes is just sore out of no where to move my arm/under my armpit/shoulder/and implant site - as if I've slept on my arm wrong or lifted heavy weights when I didn't do either one. Even when I exercise my upper body, I'm not usually sore like this. March 2020 will make 2 years for me since implantation and this happens on and off sometime. Not sure if I should be concerned if it's the leads or just general weakness now that I have the PM. Anybody else experience this? 


Same here!

I experienced very similar feelings but it has since resolved. The only difference is I've only had my PM for a little over a month. But I did experience almost the same feelings as you did. Maybe check with your doctor. I'm sure it wouldn't hurt. Have a good day!


Not normal

I've been pacing for 16 years and have not noticed what you describe. I continue to go to the gym and am active and never noticed my left arm weaker than my right. Maybe you have avoided using your left arm so that when you do certain things you notice that it's weaker?
