Pacemakers for POTS

Doctors suggesting pacemaker with POTS, is this safe? I am currently on Florinef and Mestinon, but Heart Rate all over the place. ???

They say that ablation isn't too safe for people with POTS because they can wind up pacemaker dependent.  I have never heard that having a pacemaker with POTS was not safe.  My heart rate is all over the place too, but I've not had a doctor suggest a pacemaker (maybe mine's different from yours).  Did they say was what led them to believe a pacemaker would be appropriate in your case?  If you can and since you are concerned especially , I'd recommend getting a second opinion from somebody who is very familiar with POTS and how it behaves.
