I had the chemical stress and I'm so glad I didn't read about it first, because I would have been expecting to feel bad and therefore probably would have. I had a totally different experience with mine. I did not have any side effects and
did not experience any ill feelings at all. So I guess its different for everyone. You may be one of the lucky ones. I'll tell you this though if it were not for that test they wouldn't have found my problem a major blockage 95% in my arota!
So I thank God for that test.
Yes you are correct that many people feel differently during a stress test induced chemically. Even people with healthy hearts can feel a tightening in the chest and someone with disease may feel nothing at all. Maybe a key is how calm you stay during the inducing of the stress. I can imagine some people may let anxiety really kick in.
I'm glad you now know the problem, and I agree, stress tests are excellent for finding problems.
