Stress test your strategy

Common Questions and Answers about Stress test your strategy


Avatar m tn If you have a heart disorder, consult your physician well in advance of your departure to plan a coping strategy that includes medication schedules and doctor's appointments, if necessary, in the destination time zone.
Avatar n tn They want to do a chemical stress test using lexiscan drug. I am terrified, should I be? I read so many bad experiences with this type of test.. I heard the drug stops your heart...
Avatar m tn Did you take an oxidative stress test? My strategy is just to take a lots of fresh organic vegetables and fruits high in ORAC (antioxidant levels), cut down meat and simple carbs. Alternate days I take COQ10 enzymes which is good to get rid of free radicals roaming in our bodies. And of course not to forget our vit c, d and e. I have not tested my oxidative stress levels yet as regular clinics here do not have this test, only a holistic clinic 2hrs drive from where I live offers it.
Avatar n tn I knew that I would be served at some time. It was the recommended strategy to wait for the other party to serve me. -- Within hours of being served these papers(eventhough I did not turn pages and reading details), I was thrown into familiar pain. From time to time, are we all thrown into post-tramatic stress syndrome symptoms eventhough each level of emotional reactions is unique to our level of remarkable reaction ???
Avatar f tn Well, cardio put me on a beta blocker, and calcium channel blocker which worked for 2 yrs, but now they are back. I am very scared. I repeated the stress test, chest xray, and ekgs, and a moniter, I of coarse only had isolated pvcs, not the every other beat and skips i was feeling. I am very scared, why is this happening? Every dr has said I'm healthy, but I can't get these flips, and blips to go away. Any suggestions, would be great!
Avatar f tn Because it takes any T4 medication 4-6 weeks to reach full potential in your blood, then even longer for your body to get well, after being hypo, nothing works quickly and you haven't been on any one medication long enough for it to reach full potential... it "is" definitely, a wait and see process. Since FT3 often lags behind FT4, your FT3 may continue to rise for a while, even after FT4 stabilizes. What dosage of levo are you on?
Avatar m tn i have been thinking about this strategy many times since i have had flares like acute hbv around 1000 many many times in my life (they said immune system trying to clear) and the flares were with low hbvdna (no hbsag at that time...) i never accepted this strategy because of the fear for my cirrhotic liver but having no damage it is a very good strategy the other danger can be mutations in hbsag during interferon monotherapy, especially at my age and with all the mutations my hbv strain has.
Avatar n tn thankyou for responding, yes had the test reached my target heart rate , but didnt feel like i had exerted myself enough to give my heart a real test, thankfully nothing showed, but wish i had some answers to the chest pain that goes down my left arm, and cardioligist says its nothing, well its not nothing its very disturbing actually put me on lipitor as bad cholestrol is 7 oh well if i cark it least i know nothing was wrong..
Avatar n tn Had a nuclear treadmill stress test done while taking the test the whole time the nurse held me up from behind 2 hands on back because i stated i had back problems and as soon as test started she began this procere is this comman practice?
Avatar f tn Anyone know?
212161 tn?1599427282 If so, they can give you something for your anxiety. I had the treadmill stress test and I was able to take a xanax. If it's the other one that's a medicine induced stress test where you lay on a table, then I'm not sure. Is your Dr. wanting you to get this test done? Has the chest pain went away since you started using your inhaler? You know anxiety can give alot of us shortness of breath and chest pains.
Avatar f tn I am scheduled for a nuclear stress test on july 30, and an echo. I have had an echo but was wondering what the stress test was?? Anyone with info please help??????
Avatar m tn After my first a-fib episode they had me do the stress test and they advised they are prepared for anything, You need to trust your cardiologist. Good Luck!
Avatar f tn ok I have had the stress test for abnormal EKG, I passed this test with flying colors but have not yet heard the results. Would this be a good thing?
Avatar n tn I can produce a numbert of different opinions what is the appropriate heart rate and so on with exercising. The best method for someone with a heart issue is to have a stress test. A stress test is oftened done for the purpose of learning the degree of tolerance/risk one can safely do. The rule of thumb stated is not recommended for someone who has heart issues. You will be safe to engage in exercising according to METs.
212161 tn?1599427282 I assume you had an Echo Stress Test and not a Nuclear one. I am sure the "wiggle lines" you are referring to had nothing to do with you walking barefoot (I had them too up to the point were the ECG became unreadable and I have as yet found nobody that could/would explain this to me) and they stopped the test because you had reached your prescribed heart rate of 140 BPM - so nothing wrong with that.
Avatar f tn Don't know your medical issues but your age is an indication for twice weekly antenatal testing.
7136384 tn?1390142888 Stress test or non-stress test? During a NST they just hook you up to a monitor to keep track of baby's movements and heart rate. During a stress test they actually stimulate contractions and monitor baby's response to those contractions.
8818986 tn?1406114699 So I have to go now every week for a stress test that they are going to be doing on my baby because I have extra fluid. Does anybody know how they do it?
Avatar f tn 55 into the test when I passed out. In that 4:55, I had frequent pvc's; 2 PVC couplets and 1 PVC triplet and my QRS segment of PVC's narrowed substantially with exercise, widening again in recovery (180 ms to 80 ms) which I was told was a problem.
212161 tn?1599427282 Hi, we'll I had my stress test done, just the exercise one with no dye or pictures, I ran it about 7 mins got my heart to 104 percent, could of keep going if I needed to, had no chest pains, or sob. They said you passed sent me on my way. Good news My question is , without pics how much can they tell about the heart, if I had a blockage would it had shown up? Should I feel good about my heart? Thank you so much for all your time.
Avatar f tn is once too often.Proceed with nuclear stress test and do not dismiss your symptoms.Women can present very differently then men when it comes to chest pain. Get it checked out to find out what's going on. Joan.
