pain

My dif/pacer started beeping a week ago and I went in this past thursday for them to turn the beeping off. I did not even realize it was me that was beeping until they called and told me. I have to have a battery change in a couple of weeks but my questions is that tonight I had a pain where my device is and it rain down my left arm. It was a sharp and tingling pain and it stayed around for a few minutes. Is that normal after they turn the beeping off.

New sudden chest pain

Sugdaro2005,

When you went in to the clinic to get your device adjusted to prevent the beeping, did they manipulate your device in any way when examining you?  

This could just be coincidence but if this sharp, tingling pain keeps coming back you need to alert your clinic who may wish to carry out some further checks or bring you in earlier for your battery change and have a good look around.  

In my opinion, if this is new and sudden and sharp and continues, as with any new chest pain symptoms, it should ideally be checked and the sooner the better.

If you remain pain free, I wish you all the very best for your battery change in a couple of weeks.

Thank you for your comment. I will go back to my doctor and bring this to her attention.

I have had my pacer since 2005. At first it ruled my life. It took some time to calm down and make the mental adjustment. I had trouble sleeping and I worried a lot about pulling wires. Now I just live my life as I wish.
