Whats this???

I had my stress test and couldn't walk the treadmill at all. I got the 1st 3 minutes of the test done and could not go any further. Does that mean that I have A heart problem? I had shortness of breath and I could not pick up my heart rate over 82 B P M.
Any feedback of this question will be appreciative . I'm not sure what they found on the test, but I will know Tuesday of this next week.
Thank you, Hammy41

Did they stop the test or did you ask to stop? Why did you have to stop - chest pain, short of breath, fatigue?

They stopped the test when I went down on the treadmill.  When I came to, I was back on the gurney.
I asked what happened, and then they shot the rest of the dye in my arm for the 2nd
set of pics? The tech called the DR. in right there to see the pics monitor and they we're whispering. ?
They let me go home that afternoon and rest. I was fatigued and slept all afternoon, when I got home.

That's pretty lousy that they didn't give you some feedback right then and there. And I'm surprised they sent you home after fainting like that. Sounds like you'll just have to take it easy till Tuesday (tomorrow?) and find out the results then. It will be interesting to see what they have to say.
