Normally, she should not have such pain after the insertion of the pacemaker. Maybe its position is causing some muscle spasm that is affecting her arm. The best option is to take her back to the doctor who inserted the pacemaker and explain the situation to him.
If she has some fever, it may mean that the pacemaker place is infected and needs an urgent intervention.
Thanks Brokenpen, actually she is not getting pain in around pacemaker, she is only getting pain stating from shoulder. hardly she is getting pain near by pacemaker.
hi! Is it a constant pain or does it come and go. i have a pacemaker as well, got it back in feb. and i occasionally feel pains shooting down my arm. is hers a duel pacemaker, that has a difibulator? i dont know why her pacemakers implanted, but if it has a difibulator the pain would come but it should go. if not she might want to see her cardiologist or electrophysiologist again and make sure she not expierencing a heart attack. it wouldnt be a problem with the implantation because its put in a small pocket, i would think its a symptom of what she's being diagnosed for.

Nerve may have been clipped... she need mri and ncs/emg.
Has her breathing been impacted?
