stress test side effects

The past two days i had the radiation stress test now on the 2 day i feel like i have been hit by a car all of my muscles hurt and i am very fatigue. Is this a side effect of the radiation or is it something else causing me to feel this way? If it is a side effect how long will it last? I had to have the radiation stress test because i could not do the treadmill test due to being on crutches.

Hello and hope you are doing well.

The incidence of side effects are low with the stress test. In the study of 3911 patients, the most frequent adverse reactions were: chest pain/angina pectoris (19.7%), electrocardiographic changes (most commonly ST-T changes) (15.9%), headache (12.2%), and dizziness (11.8%). It could cause fatigue also. The symptoms may last for 1-2 days as it is short acting.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
