could you please help me,
for the past few days, i have been having dizzy spells with heart palpitations and increased heart rate, my vision changes when i walk and get these spells, my lips will go numb for a few seconds, i also will have some minor chest pain, shortness of breath, shoulder pain in the left and right shoulders. my doctor wants to put me on a holtor monitor for 1 month, i don't feel good, should i make another appointment with my doctor for this and what do you think it could be? it would be greatly appreciated.
A 30-day event monitor (or Holter monitor) is used to determine whether there is any unusual arrhythmias that can be causing symptoms such as dizziness and palpitations. In a patient with symptoms such as yours, I would recommend my patients wear one until at least these episodes can be captured.
