    I had this today. It felt like I was climbing out of thr grand canyon. I made it and my heart rate was 135 when I finished. They inject tracer in to your arm and take pictures of your heart and then after that you go on the tread mill up hill and speed it up at differnt times and do a ekg at the same time, then after that they inject more tracer and take more pictures of my heart. This is to see if I have any blockage in my arteries to my heart. My doctor wanted to do this cause I developed a blood clot in my lung in June. I am glad I have been going to the gym on the tread mill every other day or I could not have done this test. I will see the Doctor on Monday and see if all is OK. What an experience, today.

    I had this done last year. And I don't excercise. It showed too. Then I found out they can do a lying down one for those who cannot walk much. I did good until it started slanting...What a trip. :(:(

    My DH is having one done Thursday. His BP has been high for a couple of weeks and they want to know why. I think it's salt....He's been drinking a lot of Gatorade and Powerade and that stuff is LOADED. It's going down now that he's stopped.

    Good luck on yours, Suzanne

    My wife had to do this one time and luckily the doctors didnt find anything at all, but man was she worn out! I am praying for you for good results and nothing being wrong other than you need to exercise more. :P

    Keep your head up and keep us up to date, like I said you are in my families prayers and I am wishing you the best!


    Lots of Love
