Heart rate

Who do you ask to wear a holter monitor? I feel guilty asking my pcp because he's so sure it's anxiety, but he hasn't done any tests except a lying EKG. I don't like taking drugs for one disorder when I don't feel like they've really tested and ruled out another. I'm so frightened!!  I'll stand up and my pulse will shoot up to 120 and I'll start to sweat and I get so tired. I can't do anything, not even cry because that'll just give me a headache. So I just sit here and tremble and hope that if I do have a heart attack it'll be when my husband's here and not just my daughter. I do have another appointment Monday, but how do you make them listen when they're so sure they're right?

I would just tell your doctor how you feel about wanting to wear a holter monitor. I am not sure if you have to go to a cardiologist or your regular doctor can get you on one. My doctor thinks that I am crazy. Everything is anxiety, but if I want something I just tell him. I have done pretty good lately. When I first got anxiety a couple of years ago I requested everything. Now I have gotten better. I believe in my heart that If this wasn't anxiety I would be dead by now or my illness I believe that I have always had would be worse.  You are the same as I was I would always worry something was going to happen to me and if it did PLEASE let it be when my husband is here. Not just my girls. Just tell your doctor on monday how you feel. I know everyone doesnt have the best doctors. I have to give mine a 2 thumbs up for putting up with me for the last couple of years. He also says how proud he is of me of how far I have come too. I hope all goes well for you on monday. Keep us informed. Enjoy your weekend.

I had to go to a cardio to get a montior.  Tell them you want an event montior.  That way you wear it for more then 24 hours and whatever is going on (sure it's nothing) they can see it.  You get to wear the event monitor for 30 days.  Aren't holter montiors just for 24 hours?
