Hello, I am new to Healing Well and to cardiovascular disease. I had my first stress test yesterday. They injected me to stimulate exercise. Since this test I have been experiencing pressure and pain. Almost as though an elephant is sitting on my chest. Is this normal?
Thank you,

Welcome to HW.  I am not sure what post-procedure instructions your Dr. gave you but I would highly suggest you call your Dr., the clinic or, if you still feel the chest pressure, present to an ER.
You are probably fine but I do not like to see " an elephant sitting on anyone's chest" in this forum.  :-)
Remember we are not professionals and your Dr. should know about your symptoms.
