Good Morning,
  I had an EP study done on Thursday which was negative. I am 32 yrs old and have been dealing with palpitations, heart fluttering, one episode of passing out, several close pass outs, lightheadedness and dizziness. I was hoping and praying the study would uncover the arrythmia but it didn't. How many have had studies that were negative and then had a positive one?
 I had an implantable monitor put in because my EP wants to catch this. The monitor placement was very painful. Does anyone have one of these? How painful was your recovery? I had my place through my breast reduction scar and it is so painful right now. My breast is pulling down on my chest causing me pain where the monitor is. Anyone have experience with this?

Has your arrythymia ever been dx - is it fast or to slow ?  Do not give up and perhaps get a second opinion from a cardiologist.

I had a small episode of SVT on a strip at the ER but that is all they caught. My heart rate is usually in the 90-100's when resting but I get dizzy spells and my HR is in the low 50's. So it isn't like all my symptoms are just because it is too fast or too slow. If that makes sense. I am debating seeing another cardiologist about this but in the mean time I am praying hard the ILR catches that activity so I can get a real diagnosis.
