Pain in my ICD site
This is a edited post -- can't sleep on my side
After many years of being a side sleeper.
Now all of the sudden I can't sleep on my ICD side. Small History I have HOCM and have had 2 open heart surgeries and on my second ICD.
Post surgery and open heart of course I had to sleep on my back or sitting up in a recliner.
That was over 10 yrs ago and this ICD is Over 5 years old. I've adventually returned to side sleeping until now.
I wake up in lots of pain in my shoulder where the ICD is. I don't ever mess with it and It's been about a month now. Sometimes it hurts randomly. Saw dr today and she said it felt to be in the pocket and not slipped out.
I had my machine checked and it was ok Perhaps I should ask for a ultra sound any thoughts.
