Good afternoon,
I met with my PCP and he scheduled me for a thallium stress test in the morning.  I am scheduled for an echocardiogram next week on the 10th.  It was very interesting that he did not mention the blood pressure medicine causing the bradycardia.  Maybe because I take such a low dose????  Still having the symptoms as before.  The numbness and tingling seems to be more prominent on the left right now.  Has anyone here had the thallium stress test to tell me what to expect??  He did mention if the stress test was positive, he would cancel the echocardiogram.  Any thoughts as to why this would be??  I wish I was available for the chat tonight.  With two sons, one graduating college and the other high school, my evenings are booked through May and now with this happening my days are spenting chasing my tail.  Thanks for any advice all.  Have a great chat!!!
