  • Hi Louise, it may be worthwhile speaking to your GP at greater length and discussing ECG options in greater detail; perhaps you could have either a 24 or 72 hour ECG to detect any irregular rhythms or missed beats. You can learn more about heart monitoring and ECG here heartrhythmcharity.org.uk/w... Thank you
