In brief: Yes
There are some side effects with some types of stress test.
The chemical stress tests tend to have a few more side effects than exercise. Fortunately these are usually gone within a few minutes to have an hour. There are also some rare complications which can include death heart attack and arrhythmias.

In brief: Yes
May cause heart attack.
But, without the information gained from a stress test we are in the dark about your heart health.
