    Kathy, I hope the test went well. Like the others, I've no clue as to what a nuclear stress test is -- can you tell us about it when you return?

    Thanks for the link. I did read up on it, but thought someone else may have done it.

    It wasn't bad...

    Strapped me all up with wires then put a shunt in my arm. Hopped on the treadmill and got my heart rate up then put some neon green stuff into my arm, ran for a bit longer then cooled down. After a few minutes they did an MRI type thing on my heart. I came back 2 hrs later and they did another MRI.

    I go to the Cardiologist on Monday for results. Hopefully all will be fine and I can start working out again.

    Glad to hear everything went ok. A few years ago I had to go for a cardiac catheter (nice 6' wire put into my leg and up into my heart) because the docs though I might have had a heart attack.

    Everything was fine, it was just really bad stress related symptoms.

    That's why I moved to New Hampshire, to get away from all the stress, now I just take pictures
