    Has Anyone Else Had The 24 Hour Blood Pressure Holter Monitor?

    Hello

    I'm just wondering whether there are any peeps about that have had the 24 hour blood pressure holter monitor??

    I'm asking as I had mine fitted this morning and I'm finding it really uncomfortable on my arm It really does inflate very, very tight, it cuts off my blood supply in my left arm so that my hand goes red and purple and I'm finding it pretty painful really.

    It's inflating every half an hour during the day and every hour during the night.......I can't quite fathom out why it would need to take readings so frequently, I mean they don't even usually take your blood pressure that often if you were in hospital do they?

    I just hope I have the patients and staying power to keep the damn thing on all night!!!...........roll on tomorrow morning

    Well at least it brought a smile to your face. I hope you don't suddenly take off during the night. I would lock all the windows and doors and don't venture outdoors xxx

    Hello,

    I had one fitted last month and it was really uncomfortable! It was just as you describe it and at one point inflated so tightly I got little sort of pin prick red spots on my hand! I wasn't a very good patient though and had panic attack and took it off

    In hindsight I should've done what Nicola did. Hope you get a half decent nights sleep. Xx
