Customer: replied 20 days ago.
Hi,
What's a holder monitor?
Expert:  the-good-doctor replied 20 days ago.

It is a wearable EKG that you wear for 24 hours

it looks for heart rhythm issues

Hi,
Not recently. I did 8 years ago when something like this happened then and it came back clear.
Customer: replied 20 days ago.
It doesn't do it when I run or lift heavy weights.
Expert:  the-good-doctor replied 20 days ago.

Okay good. I would get another holter done

8 years is a long time

Customer: replied 20 days ago.
Okay. Do you think it's heart related?
Expert:  the-good-doctor replied 20 days ago.

I'm not sure.

fluttering in the stomach or chest commonly is

If it is, it is likely not serious but we should try to figure it out

Customer: replied 20 days ago.
Okay. It happens for fraction of a second then goes. When it stated again I developed really bad gas, which is what the doctor thought it was.
Expert:  the-good-doctor replied 20 days ago.

that sounds like IBS

Customer: replied 20 days ago.
That's what the GP thinks. Been under a lot of stress recently with a death etc. How can I stop it?
I run and exercise. I'm very healthy in general. Ear well etc, but get really bloated etc and have to burp to release it. Some days are worse than others. Abs then it can completely go for days and then return.

It doesn't appear after exercise and Eben when I run 8k up hill it doesn't happen.
