I understand your anxiety about your holster monitor. my suggestion is to call the doctor who ordered the test so that he can sit down and talk about what this means to you. although I can expand the abbreviations for you, the whole meaning of any test should be taken in the context of your symptoms. I am not sure if this is related to your pain or not and I think a face to face talk with your doctor will be better to allay your anxiety
