Had a stress test today, pure hell.... First they put 12 or 13 adhehive contacts on you so they can connect a bunch of wires, then take blood pressure, mine is down from where it was, then they do an echo test of the heart to establish a base point I think. Then I got on the treadmill, started out comfortably, then faster and then faster still, I was walking fast, nearly running, heart beat was up to 110 or so, and I was out of breath and had to stop. Since this wasn't working they had me lay down and installed an IV in my arm for some kind of drug, first saline then the drug, after awhile I felt pressure in my neck, and could feel my heart beating faster and faster. The cardiologist was there then and told me to lift my legs up and down, and wave my arm, I felt silly, and probably looked worse, but getting more and more tired, light headed, out of breath, and about ready to pass out eventually my heart beat got up to where they wanted it and they did another echo test. I got dressed, stumbled out to my van, and drove home, still out of breath and light headed for lack of a better description. Not fun, when they say stress test, they should put emphasis on stress.
