Greetings, I had to have a conversion to stop a first time afib with flutter on tues. they said I needed to have the stress test where they put the radioactive shot in and watch all to see if blockages are anywhere....Are there any one who have any side effects after? I seemed fine and did the test, they said it was negative, and let me go home from hosp.stay next day... Since home I have a horrible time inthe am? I get up and my heart rate goes real fast, and I have to sit down, wait a few more min's, get up and walk a little more, till finally after an hour or more, till I can walk with out any of the high heart rate.. My pressure goes way down,89/58 then comes back to normal after waiting for that hour and a half.. I feel rattled, nervous, depressed,etc... Is there anything anyone knows or has experienced like this?? Heart fine, Lungs fine... Just hidious morning knowing when I get out of that bed after waiting 5 min. sitting and moving ankles legs, hoping that will work, but nothing... I never took asprin before and know I am suppose to take every day, been doing that since I got out of hosp... 9 days now... I panick, I don't know but I feel like a freak, or a walking bomb.. I am the only caretaker of my wonderful 93 yr old Mother, whom I adore, and I just wonder and worry...Dr. said oh just sit on bed and wiggle legs and ankles~ PLEASe if any one can give me even a non hopeless case feeling that would be great. Don't know but been this way ever since I have been home.... Thank you for listening, Candy
