What is the treatment for a muscle pain?

Hi I am 35 and have had a Defibrilator since I was 25. I have had chronic pain in my muscles on my left side since the implant. Can you advise if this is common, and how normally treated? My cardiologist has stated most patients are older with much less of an active lifestyle than mine.

implantation of defibrillator on left side of the heart, usually should not cause any pain. but here the reason may be because of anxiety or worry, you may be doing restricted movement of the left arm and if that arm has done some extra work, you may feel chronic muscle pain. if implanted defibrillator is normal, then do graded exercise and apply analgesic gel if required. it will go gradually. take help of physiotherapist if required.
