Stress affects most people in some way. Acute (sudden, short-term) stress leads to rapid changes throughout the body. Almost all body systems (the heart and blood vessels, immune system, lungs, digestive system, sensory organs, and brain) gear up to meet perceived danger. These stress responses could prove beneficial in a critical, life-or-death situation. Over time, however, repeated stressful situations put a strain on the body that may contribute to physical and psychological problems. Chronic (long-term) stress can have real health consequences and should be addressed like any other health concern. Fortunately, research is showing that lifestyle changes and stress-reduction techniques can help people learn ...Read more

If adequate heart rate is not achieved then pharmacologic (lexiscan) stress test can be performed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Had a nuclear stress test done today. Due to dvt, couldn't do treadmill instead they used lexiscan. Read about lexiscn leading to heart att. Worried.
Don't Worry Be Happy: The risks you were worried about relative to the Lexiscan injection would have occurred during the test.

There are several heart medications to avoid the day of and before as well but check with your doc ...Read more
