Dear Dr.Phil
My partner had a pacemaker fitted two and a half weeks ago.
He keeps getting like pins and needles in his left arm also he says that it
feels like small electric shocks.
He wont let me ring the hospital as I think he is worried what it could be.
(As I am)
He also uses an electric razor is this ok ?
(He is 74years of age)
Many thanks
Look forward to your reply
Hello. I'm Dr. Phil, licensed and practicing internist. Excellent service is my goal.
Hi Wendy
The lead could be off. He needs to call right away and have this checked.
Also, he can use an electric razor. That is not a problem
Hope this helps. If you have more questions, just reply.
