I went back today for my check up. So he ask about my symptoms. So he put me on a low dose beta blocker and ordered 24 hr monitor

Why are drs so quick and don't explain in English what these big words mean. Lol. I know you all aren't drs so you can dx I just need to know if this within normal or what exactly is it referring to. Drs was Indian and so short (no pun intended) and didn't explain from the test results why my heart palpitates and races. Thinking of getting a second opinion.

Someone translate this for me please, google is no help

I am sorry but we are not qualified to interpret test results here in the forums as we are not medical professionals.  I would kindly suggest you make an appointment to go back to the DRs. and ask for an explanation of your tests presented in layman'sa terms and be sure to ask questions if there is something you donot understand.
Good luck,
