Nuclear Stress Test


Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone - Just to keep you all posted I went to see my electrophysiologist/cardiologist on 11/15 and he scheduled a nuclear stress test and echocardiogram for 12/14(my b-day :) )to see why I am having so many problems with my breathing and heart racing when exerting myself even a little, even though I am on beta blocker, as well as other meds. I had the holter moniter done a few weeks ago and it didn't show much except that my heart rate was going up to 120 bpm at some points,even though I am on pindolol to keep it down,but basically, it really didn't show anything,which is what I figured would happen. Anyway, I hope I don't pass out during this stess test because usually after about 2 minutes of physical activity, I am dizzy,huffing and puffing and its not a pretty sight. If any of you had this test, let me know - I'd like to know what to expect. Thanks. Hope you all have a nice Thanksgiving and spend lots of quality time with your family and friends this week!!!! :D Beth in NJ
