pacemaker damage????

  about a two  weeks ago I had a bad fall. All bruises and  soreness has gone now except for area around my pacemaker. My arm by the pacemaker is hurting more now that it did after the fall. Yesterday  my hear t rate was going up and down. Could I have damaged my pacemaker during the fall?

Damage is possible, but unlikely I believe.  You have to check with the doctor who manages your pacemaker - maybe the technician supporting the doctor may be able to answer.

I do not see how anyone can speculate further from brief information over the Internet.

Sorry about the fall... I have read, and try some, to work exercises that improve my balance.  I have read that falls are often caused, especially among the aging, by a loss of body balance.  I'm an old guy and practice in the morning by putting my trousers on, one leg at at time while standing, not sitting.  I stand in a door frame so I can catch myself if I "lose it".

Sorry you had a fall, we can't be too careful and hope you are spared further falls  Best to analyze what caused the fall and work on avoiding future similar events.
