Bradycardia and POTS

Anyone here who suffers from bradycardia?
I have bradycardia and I think I might also have POTS.

(In normal healthy people the heart rate goes up around 10 beats per minute when the person goes from sitting to standing position. POTS sufferers have an abnormal increase in heart rate, usually an increase of more than 30 bpm. It is because the body's cardiovascular system has a hard time coping with gravity.)

I want to know if it is common to have both bradycardia and POTS or not? And if a pacemaker could possibly also treat my POTS?

Anyone who knows anything about this?
