What is the nature of your abnormal EKG. Mine is supposedly abnormal as well, but my abnormality is an inverted T-Wave, which I've had all my adult life. What did the doctor say and suggest for follow-ups?
Event monitors are available in different configurations, traditional, as you discussed, implantable, and one that works just by placing your thumb on metal pads on the device.

Constipation, in terms of the condition or of the bearing down to attempt a movement, which of these make your palpitations worse?
Drink ample water, in warm weather, we sweat so much, even if not perceptible as visibly dampened clothing, for the loss of water by sweating deprives the large intestine of an adequate supply. The large intestine is responsible for removing water from intestines, the more we sweat, the less available in the intestines, and this contributes to constipation.
Constipation can be worsened by certain medications and illicit drugs.
