Can a stress test kill you

Common Questions and Answers about Can a stress test kill you


Avatar_n_tn Really, believe it or not, the adult body needs a solid 8 hours of sleep a night to do the things it needs to and you are not even getting half of this. You can do a number of things to control stress-- first you need to get adequate sleep. if you have insomnia, you probably need some drugs to help you sleep. You also need exercise , which should help you sleep and also will help you control stress.
Avatar_n_tn From what I know it is hard to see a specialist in England and can takes months to get the tests you request. If you are truely still woried ask for an Echocardiogram and an EKG and maybe a 24-48 Holter Monitor as this will almost always pick up any dangerous heart conditions. But regualr sinus tachycardia (normal heart rhythm just fast) cannont harm you at all.
Avatar_f_tn Without a serious underlying medical problem, no, anxiety can NOT kill you, neither can a panic attack, as scary as they may feel. Obviously, what you're doing right now isn't managing the anxiety at all, therefore, you need to have a discussion with your doctor about how to proceed. I also highly recommend trying an SSRI type antidepressant, like Zoloft, Celexa, Prozac. They have been very effective in treating anxiety disorders.
Avatar_n_tn Hello doctor. Can you please tell me what it means when you have an abnormal stress test? My results are as follows: 1. Good exercise capacity 2. No chest pain with exercise 3. No significant dysrhthmia 4. ST drpression developed with exercise ? etiology 5. Excerise EKG: One mm hoizonal ST dpression inferolaterally Does this sound serious????? I am totally stressed. I also had an echo and it showed a small amount of mitral value regurtation. Could that be why I get palps?
Avatar_m_tn So I went to my new cardiologist today and he was pretty upset that my old one didn't order any tests for my pvc's other then a holter. So he is giving me a echo and a stress test next week, well i'm pretty scared to do the stress test I havn't ran since my pvcs because i'm so scared i'm just gonna fall over. How long do they make you run for? and how fast do they make you run? And is there going to be a dr/nurse there to do CPR if anything bad happens?
1131756_tn?1260245912 The systolic BP is a bit high, but you diastolic is normal, so I don't think there is much of a problem there. Anything can cause a jump in blood pressure including just walking to the store. I don't think you have too much to worry about. If you start worrying about all of this the catecholamines you are pouring into your blood system, are really going to make matters a lot worse for you; listening to your heat beat alone could cause enough stress to cause the PACs/PVCs.
Avatar_m_tn To be honest, with your age, I would think if you are showing any signs of disease, you will be catching it early. You say there is a family history, but you do know fitness is one of the key things for a healthy heart and normal blood pressure? Are you eating healthy? don't smoke? how is your blood cholesterol level? Stress does cause a lot of problems if prolonged but you can lower the risks considerably with the above suggestions.
Avatar_m_tn hi please read this forum very carefully without worry though. To answer you question will HBV kill? Yes it will cause cancer ; cirrhosis ; liver failure if one has active and untreated infection over many years. Chronic hep b is a silent killer. Some chronic hbv patients- carriers that have an immunological control over their infection dont require treatment. Because their load is low or undetected these folks just need to be monitored and need to lead a healthy life style.
253496_tn?1235231285 I've had humpteen and as long as you don't take a beta blocker the night before, all will be well. My former stupid cardiologist had to clear me for sinus surgery. I had no idey it would involve a stress test. He said "can you take the stress test today?" I says sure why not. I forgot that you always skip your dose of a bb the night before a stress test, but the **&^%% doctor should not have.
11849443_tn?1441306441 I have a stress test in a week or so and wanted to know a few questions if you guys don't mind. I have read they use the Bruce protocol, is this correct? Also I'm so confused about the grade% I want to see how I can do this same test at my gym but I can not find each grade/incline difference. Is the test pretty tough, how long did you last?
Avatar_n_tn Is it normal to have a panic attack during a stress test? I'm a 38 yr old male in general good health, I started have panic attacks in Sep. My dr. put me on propranalol and it works great, the problem is when I don't take it I have an attack. He did blood work and everything came back good except for minor lipids, he said I could work it out with diet and exercise then scheduled me for a nuclear stress test just to be safe. Triglycerides 284 Total Chol.
370181_tn?1428180348 Look, as the male, I would be more than happy to go sleep in the other room. I have done just that. In those times when mine has been bad, I can't sleep during the episode anyway. Now, on a positive note. I went through a period of many months when I had this several times a week, even every day. However it then went away for months. Has only been a problem about 1 night a month for the past couple years. I had a episode about a week ago.
Avatar_n_tn You see, I'm a lot like you, so I understand about what stress will do to you and how hard it is to get that stress under control. You must get your stress under control the best you can. If this means various therapy techniques, then by all means do the therapy. If it means taking a medication, so you'll feel less stressed, then by all means do that, too. Keep in mind, though, that some medications that are meant to help with stress and anxiety will affect your IBS, too.
6822962_tn?1396333259 I think you should sit down with your OB and gently ask him what he means- so he can tell you the precise reasons whyvhe is saying that. My sister had a friend who had 1 child (I think he was 7yrs or so) and she really wanted a second child. Her OB had warned her Never to get pregnant again, or she would die. Well, she got pregnant and changed doctors, and never went back to her previous OB. Sadly she did die in the last weeks of pregnancy. Her body could not handle another pregnancy.
Avatar_n_tn , based on what information you gave, but many patients are choosing to begin these medicines anyway. The decision to have a stress test depends on a history and physical and cannot be reliable recommended or discouraged via the internet. Hope that helps.
Avatar_f_tn Since it's been 10 days it's too late for an accurate herpes lesion culture on your symptoms but oftentimes a visual diagnosis can be a good accurate place to start your work up with. You need your urine tested also. also you need to discuss the constipation issues also with a provider. I know it's hard to be seen when your family works in health care but at this point you have no choice. this has been ignored long enough and needs proper follow up.
Avatar_n_tn That means I may have to wrestle a raccoon, catch up an eagle, lift a 45 lb beaver into the sink or grab up a porcupine (you grab them under the armpits). Does it trigger my PVC's and tachy? Yeah, usually. But eventually my heart goes back to normal. I may be old (54) but I'm not ready for the rocking chair yet.
Avatar_n_tn There is a slight chance that it would show up tomorrow; however, if you choose to take a test a get BFN, do not stress out because it truly may be too early. I got a VERY faint BFP the night of 11dpo (after holding my pee for over six hours and drinking NO water during that time).
Avatar_n_tn I am sure you will be ok and all I can say is that you should try to calm down. You can go down the testing route if you wish, but I am sure that others would agree that you had low risk. Testing can begin as early as 4 weeks, but is more accurate at 6 to 8 weeks and absolute at 12. Its a long wait though.
Avatar_m_tn On 10-11-12 my journey began with a normal night out after work with a coworker. A few drinks, appetizers--all was well. Then three young women walk in, mind you the bar was packed, not a seat in the house. So, being an outgoing young professional I invited the women to sit with my colleague and I. We drank, laughed and got to know each other. As the night came to an end, I ended up going home with one of the girls.
3229560_tn?1347041110 Sounds like you may have picked up a food or water borne illness. Did you get bitten by any mosquitos? Can you keep fluids down? I hope you have seen a doctor since?
Avatar_n_tn There is no chance you have HIV or any other STD. Your symptoms don't suggest HIV or STD, and almost certainly were not acquired during the sexual encounter you describe--unless they are due entirely to anxiety, depression, guilt, or stress over that event. From your description and your doctor's diagnosis, that sounds like a good bet.
Avatar_n_tn There are also alot of other things you need to do around your house and in your life to detoxify--cleaning agents, laundry detergent, perfumes, food and water choices...there are a lot of alternatives out there and you can find a wealth of info on the internet about the chemicals in everyday products and better choices you can make for yourself. As far as the candida-heavy metal connection, it is important to note that candida alone can cause chronic fatigue.

Avatar_n_tn To a child it is usually very mild but can be severe with adults causing neuro problems for long time. There is a test fo rthe antibodies to see if you have had it. Hope this helps.
584903_tn?1233834986 Zip-lining is attaching yourself to a harness, then attaching that harness to a cable, and trusting the harness and cable to hold you, so that when you step off a platform 100 or 200 feet above ground, or run as fast as you can off a cliff's edge, you can go sailing across some expanse to the other side where the cable is attached. Exhilarating. I got to see a lot of nature from a position I am not normally in....above it all.
Avatar_n_tn was correct and you are in fact not pregnant, it is important to get to the bottom of what is going on. You may want to try a Right to Life clinic. They can help you sort through what you will need. Good luck to you.
Avatar_m_tn Yes you have alot going on at the moment and no matter how strong a person you are sometimes things just gets too much and the stress and anxiety just builds up,i too never believed that all those symptoms could be through stress i had every test going,and evrything came back normal,you need to speak more to people express how you are feeling dont go through your worries alone,but yes stress can do this to your body.
