Pain in hands after pacemaker installation

Hello Doctor I have read online in a few journals that after pacemaker installation you can get CRPS in the hands in rare cases. Could this be because of circulation issues and if so what are the natural options for medications ? Currently we are on diclofenac which seems offer moderate relief.

The best treatment is exercise and pain control
You may want to combine the diclofenac with paracetamol and get a stress ball to press regularly during the day.
