Aching PM in the winter months

I am coming up on 2 years since my implant and I live in Canada. I’m just wondering if anyone’s PM aches with the cold. I have been putting a hot water bottle on it in the evening and the ache goes away. At work I wrap a scarf around my neck to keep it warm. Just wondering if this happens to anyone else?  And if they have found any solutions.   I’m perfectly fine in the warmer months but this is second year it’s happened in the cold.

I haven't  been in severe cold (moved South from Vermont - done with that cold and snow crap) but, yes, mine will hurt when it gets cold (20s).  It's a hunk of metal, after all.  BTW, my sternotomy wires/scar also hurts in cold weather.  Keep your chest and shoulder as warm as possible.
