Many many times.

I have had 3 major heart surgeries so when I got those beats, they checked me out. Everything was fine.

HUGS. :hugs: :hugs: :hugs: :hugs: :hugs: :hugs:

I had this test done last year, although the doctor told me that I didn't need it. It was mostly to ease my mind because I was suffering from constant ectopics/palpitations. Everything came out normal and the test itself was very simple. Having the monitor attached to you was the most aggravating part! I worried so much about the results, but wouldn't you know.....I think I had 4 palpitations throughout the entire 24 hour period!!! It's almost as if the monitor stopped them for me! I guess it just proved to me that all of my "heart" symptoms are definitely related to anxiety!!

:yesyes: I had one of these moniters on Tuseday. It was ok but I now have to wait for 2 weeks for the results, I am so worried and so stressed out about this, I'm just praying everything will be ok but it does seem too long to wait and worry!!! Good luck with yours x x

Hi, I've had it a couple of times. They found something not quite right, but not a major concern either.

The test can only be a good thing; either it confirms nothing is wrong or finds something that needs fixing. If doc thought there was something significant wrong they'd be much more bullish about getting you on the monitor.

Fingers crossed you'll be fine.
