    Smart Phone Dangers

    I am a 71 year old heart patient. For years I have carried my phone in my left shirt pocket over my heart area. Recently, I have experienced some type of--seems like--electrical current over the area of my chest where my phone was located. It is not painful or anything, but I feel this type of current in that area. What is it? Is it dangerous? I'm embarrassed to tell my doctor about it.

    "I'm embarrassed to tell my doctor about it."

    Never be embarrassed to tell your doctor anything, as being apprehensive or not willing to to tell a doctor about any concerning sysmprom(s) may/could lead to serious trouble anytime down the road of life.

    Notewothy, the heart it located in the center of the chest with part of it slightly offset to the left. It is well protected from any extraneous sources that could affect/disturb the heart's electrical conduction system or its tissues.
