Well, I mentioned earlier that I've been experiencing crazy palpatations. Is this the aftermath of Chemo? Radiation? Tamoxifen?

I don't know what's causing it. It's a pattern though, I get about 2-3 weeks of crazy, severe palpatations ALL day, every day, then...nothing...zippo. It'll disappear for several weeks...then it'll start up again for 2-3 weeks. Go figure. Had my thyroid check and that was okay.

Anyway, get to have a heart holster attached to me for a whole month! How am I going to conceal it in my clothes? Won't be easy but hopefully this can capture something. I look like the Bionic woman with the wires, now if only I could LOOK like Lindsey Wagner!

Oh and of course now my heart is nice and calm...

    I went down the same road you are going through. Though I didn't wear holter monitor for than a week. Mine was just STRESS. What stress? Hope that is all you are going through. Relax, take a deep breath, it does get better with time.

    Good luck with your monitor.
    Good luck with your monitor. I hope that they find out what might be going on and it is easily fixed.
