Drop in blood pressure during stress test could be suggestive of ischemia . This could be detected by changes in EKG and Echocardiogram. Your Cardiologist can tell you if this was the case

I just want to point out that the forum allows 2 questions to the expert forums every six months, you have posted 6 times in 30 days, all pretty much the same question. This keeps others from being able to post and take advantage of this great service being provided by these fine doctors. Please follow the forum rules going forward. You are welcome to join us in the Heart Disease community, there are many experienced members that can answer your questions.

Having said that, I hope you get the answers you are looking for.
