Cardiologist 's  Response
Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Proper documentation is necessary for confirmation and further decisions.
You will have to repeat the HOLTER / more than once and for LONGER PERIOD.
If it s so troublesome to interfere with life style and/or leading to complications, the cardiologist may opt for Electro Physiological Study - but it is INVASIVE and is last in priority

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
