Symptom of something?

My duel-lead pacemaker was implanted on July 17, 2019.  I went back for the two-week check and was told everything looked good.  Since my surgery, however, I have been for tired than usual.  I'm sleeping 10-12 hours a day.  I get out of breath very easily, and when I get up from a sitting or lying position I often have to wait for my equilibrium to catch up with me or I will fall down.  I'm wondering if these problems are due to the pacemaker or one of my other multiple diagnoses.  Thanks!

Caveat all this by me assuming you have the device for a slow rythm. I have had my pacemaker over 20 years. This feeling (all of the symptoms) happens to me when my battery is low and the device goes into "reserve" mode. It may not be pacing you enough. At your next appointment tell them what is going on and they will make adjustments. A couple of things in the past that have helped me (1) make sure your upper level is high enough (sometimes, when your rate needs to be pumped up, the upper rate will not be high enough and (2) what is your lower rate set at? Sorry to hear you are struggling, but no this is not normal. I have had these symptons, and when I do and its not a low battery, I work with medtronics and my care provided to try for solutions. It may take time, but I hope something fixes these issues!
