metoo Posted February 25, 2005 Report Share Posted February 25, 2005 Hello, My doctor currently has me wearing a 30 day event monitor.I think he wanted to know if I was being honest about my symptoms!I have wore it now for 3 weeks.It has auto recorded on average 15 to 20 times a day.I brush my teeth...it goes off.My hr has ranged from 227 to 32 bpm.It has made me more aware.I try to not think about what is going on inside my body and keep a positive outlook but it is hard to ignore this infernal machine beeping all the time.Also my family is more aware of it.My husband has been wonderful and tries really hard to understand this illness but now every time it starts beeping he thinks I need to crawl into bed and never come back out!We were going to visit my Mom,which is a treat for me to be able to get out of this house,I walked to the car...it was beeping.We had a argument,he wanted me to go to bed,I wanted to go!It seems since I have this on the ONLY topic up for conversation has been my hr.I can walk up on my family talking...and guess what its about...I'll be glad when its over and life is back to normal for me.I guess it is good in a way because my father in law thought I was just lazy and nothing was wrong with me...he seems to understand better now anyway. Anyway...sorry to ramble.If anyone reads this and has had this done how exactly did it help the doctors?Thanks for any input.Melanie Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
