Can a pacemaker cause dizzy spells?
Q. My father recently had a pacemaker installed. Now, almost every time he stands up or gets out of bed, he feels dizzy. Is this a common side effect of getting a pacemaker, something he needs to get used to? Is there anything he can do about it?
A. This is definitely an issue that needs to be looked at.
