Tired

My pacemaker was installed in 2018. So I have had it awhile.  I am on a monitor checked every 3 months, in which I am charged $$ to have the monitor say its doing its job.  I don't think it monitors me. 
I am totally dependent on my pacemaker.  Recently I get warn out, where I just feel exhusted and would want to sleep.  Is this something I should concern my doctor office of?

The pacer monitor will only tell them if they pacer is working correctly and if there are any eposides that it's set to look for. There are many things that can make us tired. I would start with your GP. It's easy to get tunnel vision and blame everything on the pacer or our hearts.

What Tracey said! There are any number of things that can make one tired, both cardiac and noncardiac. If you haven't seen your primary care provider lately, then start with them.

Yesterday I moved to a new place in my mind and realized how bad I felt 'before' and the difference my pacemaker has made.
