I went for the stress test today and during the test I ended up having a couple of seizures. I have them when I sleep. Lets set the stage for this the test is done in three stages. First stage in nuclear medicine( that takes 15 minutes) they inject an isotope to see the picture of your heart at rest, than they inject the medication that speeds up your heart to the point of you being on a treadmill even thought you are not,(that takes about 8 minutes)than during the medication part they inject more isotope to take the after photos of your heart you go back to the nuclear medicine.
Now that this is said. I fell asleep during the first part of the test. I sometimes have seizures when I sleep.and that is what happened during the first part of the test. After the seizure the first part was repeated and I got Thu that part. then during the second part of the test, Iwas 2 minutes into that part when I had a large seizure and at that point the test was cancelled.
Such is my life.
