Post ICD pain

Hi all! Not sure that this is really for this board, but here goes.

An ICD was implanted last May. EP checks since all fine. Then in the middle of last night, I woke up with a very heavy ache in the left arm from shoulder to elbow. Sitting up seemed top alleviate it, and after 5 minutes or so, it was gone. Seems perfectly OK since.

I wondered if anyone else has experienced similar? TIA.

I may just have been a trapped nerve from the way you were sleeping but I suggest that you speak to your doctor if you are worried.

Thanks BobD. If it happens again, yes, I'll bolt pdq to the doc.
