I am a 57 year old woman. I have hypertension well controlled with prescription meds for 2 years. recently I went for routine exam, doc asked me whether I had shortness of breath, irregular heart beats, lightheadedness, or left arm tingling. No to all of the above. Why did doc recommend echo stress? BTW: my results came back normal (Thank goodness!), yet now I have a $9,000 bill for a test that was normal. Could any other test have been done as a heart function screen before the echo stress?

I have had breathing problems come up in the past month & 1/2 when doing much walking & small things. I have shortness of breath where I have to breath through my mouth to get enough air. I went to a heart Dr. & he said all sounds good then he had me go to a lung Dr. that now wants to have me do a sleep test. I only had about 5 of the sleep questions in minimal & that s only because I have a bad hip that wakes me up at night. I told her this but she still wants the sleep study. I want a second opinion, am I wrong ?
