Atrial vs ventricle pacing

My defibrillate/PM is atrial pacing and paces me 74 percent of the time.  I've been feeling tired lately.  Could this possibly be because my ventricle needs pacing as well?

If you have a two lead pacer, the ventricular lead will automatically pace if the atria beats but the ventricle does not follow. 

There are a lot of reasons why we can be tired. It's best to check with your doctor.

Probably not.  As Tracy points out, if your ventricles needed pacing, your pacemaker would do it. That's what the second lead is for.

Much depends on why you needed a pacemaker. Your bio doesn't get into that. But for ANY such complaints you need to see you EP or cardiologist.
