    Failed stress test

    Got a bit of a shock this morning when my doctor called to say I had failed my stress test -- the regular one on a treadmill. I'm 56, in good shape and health, normal blood pressure and a heart rate that is usually in the high 40's/ low 50's.
    It took about 10.5 minutes to get my heart rate to 144 during the test, stayed there as long as they asked (which wasn't long). Originally, I was just asking about some erectile dsyfunction medication and was told that ed could be an indicator of heart disease, which is why i was sent for the test. After my doctor got the results, she wanted to talk to me before I did anything real strenuous and tell me I'm going to a cardiologist now. Now, I don't feel so good, because I'm starting to worry. Any thoughts?

    I would run away from this doctor so fast that even roadrunner could not catch me.
