pacemaker pain

Have had an on-demand pacemaker for abt 7 months. Recently, upon lying down, there is sharp pain surrounding the left & lower edge. Rolling onto my right side eliminates this, while it increases when on my left. Presing or touching these areas makes the pain increase in sharpness.
My activity level increased over the last couple weeks, including regular 30 minute elyptical trainer exercise plus heavy lifting and throwing movements of both arms.
What could cause the new pain? Should the Dr be called soon or can it wait 3 weeks for a regular appointment?

Hello and hope you are doing well.

Sometimes the nerves or the surrounding soft tissue could have been injured during surgery and can cause the local discomfort or pain. This is more so as it is position related. If you do not have symptoms of chest pain, breathlessness or palpitations, you could wait for your appointment.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
