I suffer from permanent AFib, but I have no experience with a pacemaker.  That said, I don't think there is anything a pacemaker can do about AFib.   If you palpitations are irregular heart beats, and a heart rate that is higher than you would like, say over 100 bpm, it could be due some of to the AFib signals getting through.  I take both a beta blocker and calcium channel blocker to reduce the number of extra heart beats I get from the AFib.  This keeps my resting HR below 100, usually in the 80 range.  Of course, I am "only" 72, and know my AFib will likely get more troublesome as the years pass.  

Why do you have a pacemaker?
