I had a Nuclear Stress test yesterday 10/05/09, and was wondering if it could have caused any problems. First of all, i was extremely nervous and having high anxiety before, during and after the test. I made it through the test just fine and when I called the Dr. back about my results he said everything looked normal. There were no blockages as far as he could see. I haven't seen my GP yet, so I don't know the in depth diagnosis, if there is one.
My problem is that ever since I had the test I have been feeling sharp pains like somebody sticking a pin in me, in my chest. I have also been experiencing sharp pains in my upper back part of the arm, and upper back of the leg. It feels like the pins as well. The pain from either arms or legs, and from my chest only last a fraction of a second, so it doesn't scare me that much. I have started walking recently after being VERY sedentary for about 4 years. I have started walking before and never had problems like this, which leads me to believe it is connected to the test. I have also heard my heart beat in my ear when I lay down and I've never really done that before either, unless I was moving a lot and got my heart worked up.
I haven't had a pulmonary test yet, and I won't be able to see my GP until Nov 19th. o_O I'm 25 and 530lbs last time i checked. I don't want to die from trying to see if my heart is healthy enough to excersize, so any idea as to what could be going on would be very helpful. I think I'm going to try to see another Dr. before I see my GP. He was a bran new GP anyway, as my old one moved.
If I left any info out that would be useful, just let me know. I'm kinda new at health forums.
