Hi Everyone

I got a call from doctor today to have holter monitor fitted for 7 days. On my way to pick up my car (I dont go out much) my heart skipped constantly, I felt like my heart was running away. No pain or anthing and I could breathe fine (bit fast but i was scared because of this) I thought I was going to pass out. After 30 seconds in the car they stopped and I went and had the monitor fitted. The skips were so hard I could feel them bang against my breast bone. Anybody else have this happen? Typical that it was before monitor was fitted and not after. sad

      had no "runs 2 in the whole 7 days! typical though. but i did have 1000's of dropped beats which it picked up. still awaiting the full results though. i only know because when i went half way through the week to have batteries changed she checked what was already recorded and in 3 days it recorded 6000 "dropped beats" i hope yours goes well. keep me posted. i had a terrible reaction to the sticky pads that they attach. i couldnt wait to get it off! smile

    Yes last day today can't wait to get rid of the thing I have to press a button if I feel strange!! so I'm sure it will be a waste of time I think I needed a constant one. The sticky pads are terrible I'm missing skin on one bit of me where It just wouldn't budge when I needed a shower. Glad when its over.

      I had one that recorded constantly. It stopped a few times tho. I cant understand how these stickies are being used when they tear your skin off. Its not like I have sensitive skin. I dont. So there has to be somthing in them. Have you had any episodes?

      I have worn one in the past but they make me very nervous as I feel I will be the worse case of ectopics they have ever seen. I do not wish to wear one anymore so admire all of you who do. It did record alot of episodes but I feel I get runs of them now.

    Hi!

    Yes, I have had a very similiar experience also in a parking lot going to my car!  Years ago, when I worked at a local hospital. It was REALLY scary. Now, since I have been experiencing ectopics for 3 stinkin years, I do not get as scared but why do we have to live like this? Stay positive with me and as I keep posting, there are success stories. GI is the cause? Adrenaline? Hernia? Tired of trying to figure it out. Keep posting.
