1.5 years out from implant and seemingly tired

I'm 38 and had a dual lead implant put in about 1.5 years ago. Had bradycardia and was having some dizzy episodes. thankfully now I never drop below 50 bpm (always had a low heart rate as long as I can recall and fairly active). 

Lately, I've been more in tune with the fact that I seem tired more ofthen than I'd expect. No settings have been changed. I keep an eye on my apple watch and consistently running in low 50s when inactive. I have also noticed that I seem to be dizzy definitely more times than not when I stand up from being crouched over or down on the ground. (previously I was filling dizzy for no rhyme or reason like while sitting at desk). I'm still exercising and running a considerable amount, but I've maintained being pretty active. 

Any thoughts / feedback from anyone before I schedule a routine follow up appt with my cardiologist (and possibly EP)? 

Thanks!

fatigue and dizziness

It could be that 50 worked before for you but now it needs to be higher. It could be blood pressure. Or it could be something else. Write down day/time you feel bad, sometimes they can see what the pacer was doing at that time.
