The question is it “normal” for you in your situation? Discuss with your team. We do not know you or your heart well enough to make a recommendation.

The pacemaker catheter may induce premature beats due to local "irritation" and may need to be repositioned. I would not make more guesses as to the cause but would urge you to see your cardiologist for further advise.
