heart hiccups???

Hi Doc,
I had a dual chamber pacemaker fitted about 4 weeks ago to treat a 2nd degree heartblock and since yesterday I've been experiencing what I describe as heart hiccups.. like a pulsating in my chest, it's not continuous but has been happening on and off for over 24 hours. I'm not experiencing any pain or tightening or anything...it's just really weird and frustrating. I'm not back to work yet (until next week) so im not doing anything crazy..
I'm just wondering is this serious? or is it the pacemaker just adapting to my body??

Many thanks,
Stephanie
