Today I am flattering the heart doctor I was sent to, I am doing a stress test because I used to smoke. I have not put a cigarette in my mouth in over 10 years. He wants to see if I have heart disease. I already said I feel fine and he already agreed I did not belong in his office. But I got clearance for the test to be free so I am going around noon. I cant eat till after this test and no drinks for 4 hours prior but I have to tell them I did have a slice of cheese and my diabetes pill. I am getting it back in order and I cant do without it at this time. So I am off to walk. I wonder how long I will walk before they make me stop? I can do 40 minutes at 3.2 on my thread. read ya later :)

If you don't belong in his office then why do this test as it doesn't make any sense for you to go there just so he can make some money off of you.

It was a free test and I want my regular doctor to see, when I say I am fine I am.

@andriaperry Good that it is a free test and your doctor should take your word for it.

I did not have to stop the test, they did. I was walking straight up and I got the pulse rate to 169. They said I did good!

Yes I am because I am not sick. He wants to make sure I dont have ANY clogged arteries. I am healthy and they dont like it.

Good for you acting on the preventative maintenance part of your health and just curious, do you have anyone in your family with heart disease ?

I am not sure if there was in the past. My brothers and sister dont that I know of but I feel I am the most health conscious of them all.

It's not how long or fast you can walk but they really make it a steep incline at some point to stress your heart.
