sounds like you need a 30 day monitor to catch what's going on, have they tried a holter or event monitor?

I, too have fluttering and skipped heartbeats.  My cardiologist had me wear a monitor for two weeks.  I am awaiting results of the monitor.  I've had an eco-cardiogram, and several ekg's, along with bloodwork.  All came back fine.  I know it is very frightening when this happens to your heart.  Good Luck to you!

A 30 day Event Monitor is different frrom a 24-48-72 hour Holter Monitor. An Event Monitor, you yourself, press the button and do the recording. The Holter Monitor records non-stop for the amount of hours it is running. See if you can get the Event Monitor to wear for the 30 days.
