What happened and why??
Hey everyone, I'm 28 next month and I've had my pacemaker for 4 years. Earlier I was cooking dinner on the stove. I was stirring Mac-n-cheese with a metal spoon in a metal pan and all of a sudden when holding the spoon it felt like my hand was cramping up. I tried touching it a couple more times before I realized that the spoon was actually shocking me! I thought maybe it was just a quick static shock but it did it a couple more times when I touched it again. It wasn't just one little shock like when you have static built up, it was a constant "vibrating" type shock. I had 3 other people come over and try to touch it and it did nothing to them. I changed spoons, and it still happened. What could be the reason behind this? I've cooked nearly every night with metal pans and spoons since I've gotten my pacemaker and this has never happened. Could there be something wrong with my pacemaker that's causing it to shock me? Is there something wrong with my stove and since I'm already "electric" I'm the only one who is getting shocked by it? Could it have damaged my pacemaker? It was on my right hand, the opposite side that my pacemaker is on. I went around touching other various metal objects and nothing else shocked me like the spoon did. I'm a worry wart so this has got me very concerned.
thank you everyone.
