Holter monitor experiences so far

I’m wearing the Holter monitor and I walked to feed out of my apartment to go take out my trash, and my heart rate went from 80 to 123 beats per minute. Just wondering when all of this is going to settle down. Someone commented on my Facebook status that I had posted about this earlier and said that if I just laid down that everything would be fine. I can’t stop living my life though.

  1. Look into a cooling vest. I could be lying down outside when it’s too hot, and I’d probably still have a heart rate in the 140s. Once you get properly diagnosed, insurance will often cover them. Also, carry a water bottle with ice water everywhere, and drink at least three bottles of it daily. Maybe only start after the test finishes, though, so it doesn’t mess up the proof you have it in the first place!
