i suspect i may have POTS, so i thought i'd get a monitor so i can see whats happening to me, however, i have a fitbit type one, but it doesnt monitor me all the time and show me graphs etc so i can pin point changes etc

so i want one i can wear that will show me details at the end of the day of when my heart rate shoots up or down and my bp changes etc.

is this something eexpensive that only a hospital etc would have or can you buy them?
what would i search for? the term 'monitor' isnt very helpful
i dont want to spend loads on it though.

thanks :)

I’m not sure what POTS is but ironically I ended up in A &E yesterday with a v rapid heart beat and low sats, and I wear a regular Fitbit too.
try searching 24 hr bp monitor or ambulatory bp machine.
hoever they dont monitor in real time. Are you in a job where you could stop every 1/2 hour to check pulse and bp
"Postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS) is a condition that affects circulation (blood flow). POTS is a form of orthostatic intolerance, the development of symptoms that come on when standing up from a reclining position, and that may be relieved by sitting or lying back down. The primary symptom of an orthostatic intolerance is lightheadedness, fainting, and an uncomfortable, rapid increase in heartbeat."

Why not speak to your doctor about your concerns? If you bought a monitor, is there any guarantee it's accurate and that you have used it correctly?

One site I seen spoke of a monitor involving twelve leads being stuck to various areas on the body to measure different things.

If it is that involved, is it not better to leave it to the professionals?
I manage with a Basic Omron Mk2 for about £26. It does BP and pulse rate.Exact same model my GP uses.In our GP centre there is a wall mounted BP/HR machine which I can use to double check the calibration my one about every 6 months.
Sorry. Just read your second paragraph again and I see what I posted previously does not fit your requirements. Sorry about that.
