Echo stress test for slow heart rate exercising Have had shotness of breathe and chest tightness.Found spots on heart during test.What does this mean.
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.

Why would a doctor on this site refer me to an oncologist after I asked why I saw dark spots on my heart during a echo stress test?
Dark spots?: Hopefully you had normal cardiac function on the stress echocardiogram test. Sometimes an echocardiogram will show "dark spots" near the heart.
