Re: Stress test.... Mama
It was the one where they inject the radioactive substance (tracer?) in your vein as you lay in this donut shaped thing, arms above your head. You can't move for 30 minutes. At the end they relax all your arteries and that was horrible. My head ached. I got nauseous, felt like I was going to puke. I felt very very sick while that was happening. Though laying down I felt like I was dizzy and lightheaded. The last stress test I had to walk on a treadmill. It was no big deal.
The Pul' thinks it's weather related also. He thinks I may have asthma. He's also checking me for that hereditary missing protein that causes the symptoms I'm having. We'll know in about 2 weeks. Meanwhile it's a waiting game.
Today I get a sonogram of my carotid arteries looking for a blockage. The stress test I took yesterday will show if there a blockage in my heart.
My hip is also getting worse so I have to call the cancer place after all these tests are done.
