I have had my implant in my arm for nearly a year and a half, I have had no issues except my period being very irregular and lasting a while. I am now having pain in my arm everyone I move it quickly or lean on it. But my pain in on the opposite side of where my implant is. Every time I get this pain it bring me to tear like it's a sharp needle going into my arm, it occurs when I touch my implant to but I find it weird that it's on the opposite side to where it is inserted. Is this normal? Is actually got to do with my implant?
Go ahead and let the Dr look at it to be sure nothing is going on. It could be scar tissue or it could be irritating a nerve and that would explain why you are getting referred pain (pain somewhere other than where the "injury" or object of concern is)
