| | Thallium stress test? Is there side effects?
My physician has ordered a Thallium Stress Test. I am having palpations on exertion plus dizziness. I have a long history in my family of heart disease. My father died at 42 years old. My father came from a large family of 11 children, nine of them died of heart attacks or heart related problems. I need to get this test but I feel very aprehensive. I will be 65 years old. If you would be so kind to offer any information regarding this test I would be very appreciative. The test will be to determine how my heart works during exercise. I know this sounds like I am a sissy, and I apologize for that sincerely. Again thank you! Blessings!
