Cough and pacing

It is worth getting back onto them and mentioning your problem. It may relate to them fiddling with your threshold settings and basically increasing the electrical current, or disassociation between the atria and ventricles ( so called pacemaker syndrome) - a timing issue. 

It may of course  just be fortuitous. In any event, in view of the concern, worth a chat with the PM people..

If you see: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC483730/   re. the above.

I wouldn't be alive if it wasn't for pacemakers. I've had mine for 35+ years. I was fainting all of the time and had flat-lined also. I feel very blessed to live in this time of technology.
