Hello. I'm Dr. Phil, licensed and practicing internist. Excellent service is my goal.

You need a holster monitor.

It is a wearable ekg.

It will monitor your heart rhythm when it happens

Hi
As mentioned before, if you are having the anginal symptoms and the fast heart rate, you need to see a physician right away.

You can have a HOLTER monitor at home if they deem you are stable- but I would get evaluated in person first.

I hope that this helped
