Welcome to the forum. I am really glad to help you out. The holter analysis is a 24 hour EKG and is a very sensitive test to pick up any abnormal rhythms of the heart which might be causing the symptoms in you. If the holter analysis is okay, then some underling rhythm disturbance being a cause of your symptoms is less likely.

Anxiety might be the culprit in such a scenario. I sincerely hope your holter comes out as fine. My best wishes. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
