I had a nuclear stress test done. It came back normal, but my blood pressure went up kind of high.
I lasted 4.57 minutes on the treadmill before they stopped me.
Now they are sending me to a Cardiac Specialist...Why

your blood pressure was supposed to go up. thats the purpose of using the treadmill or having an injection. i went the injection route. it was much easier. if you're seeing a cardiologist, they saw something they're not sure of that could actually be nothing. if it was extremely serious you would have gone straight to the next step, usually cath lab.
