Brief Answer:
No. Nothing to worry.

Detailed Answer:
Dear Friend.
Welcome To HCM. I am Dr Anshul Varshney.
I understand your concern.
I suppose by saying chemical heart stress test you mean to say tests done by using some medications like Isoprenaline, dobutamine during ECHO or Tread Mill Test (TMT).
Please correct me if I am understanding you wrong.
If you have undergone such tests then there is nothing to worry at all.
These medications will leave your body soon. Might be they have already left depending on the medicine used for this purpose.
Don't worry. Whatever risk is there is only at the time of testing. Afterwards you are absolutely safe.
If you have any further query please ask me.
Stay Healthy.
