    I am scheduled to have this done tomorrow. They are going to inject me with the stuff to make my heart think it has been exercising. Has anyone else had this? If so, could you tell me how it was for you? Did it make you sick?

    Thanks so much.

    a few years back. After the doctor injected me, my heart beat really fast and hard - as if I had been doing cardio. My poor heart didn't remember ever beating that fast!

    I did feel a little faint/dizzy and the doctor was called back to give me another injection to slow my heart down.

    Basically I found that it was no big deal but it did take the entire day and I cannot remember why. The stress test was the last part of the test. I don't remember what else they did all day.

    I was last in an assembly line of 7 patients so we each had to take our turns. And the test didn't show any problems.

    I hope that yours doesn't show any problems either, living4Him.

    Good luck tomorrow!
