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.
