Strange vibration

My pacemaker was implanted 5 months ago tomorrow! It has been a journey.  That is for another post.  Overall, I have been feeling quite well. Two days ago I felt a light intermittant vibration in my lower left abdomen.  At first, I thought it was my stomach growling.  This is different and it has been going on for about 36 hours now. It comes and goes but is a consistant pattern when it is vibrating; almost  sense of a cell phone vibration but very distant.  I recently added a bit more arm exercise to my walking and stretching routine. Nothing is extreme but it is the only thing that is different.  Nothing hurts.  It just feels odd and makes me nervous.  I can't be sure it is related to my pacemaker, but it sure seems like it.  I have read posts about pacemakers vibrating near implant site.  Has anyone experienced this type of sensation or does anyone have any information to offrer? As alawys, I appreciate your responses.

I'm glad you're doing well. I started to notice that I was ok at the seven months past implant stage. 

I'm watching this post. We've had discussions about vibration recently. Please copy and paste this link. There's an additional link or two inside as well. I'm having vibrations but mostly just above the belly button and can go across the entire area above that up to and across both arms. It is not happening near the pacemaker site for me, but below that and above the belly button. Read details here:

The pacemaker tech has adjusted things but it's still present, though not as strong.

Lavender, Thank you for your comment and the links to additonal posts.  I guess it makes me feel a little better to know others are dealing with similar experiences; although it's not great for any of us.  I will post any information I receive once I have this checked out and will continue to watch for more infomation. Thanks, again.

This link describes others who had this tweaked by settings on their pacemaker:

You know you're wired when...

You have rhythm.

I feel so blessed to have this little gem implanted in me. When I think of the alternative it is quite overwhelming sometimes.
