I had a metabolic stress test where the blood pressure cuff

Customer Question

I had a metabolic stress test where the blood pressure cuff repeatedly measures and it went an extra 20 minutes because of technical issues and now my arm hurts really badly. I have a history of blood clots. Is there any reason to be worried?

I'm Dr Chaithanya, attending you today.

No need to worry, this can cause compromise in blood circulation, but not blood clots.

You can slowly move your arm up and down, and so that the circulation is back, and pain is decreased.

The pain should gradually come down, and should be completely gone maxiumum by an hour. If it still persists, you need to visit the doctor.[which happens rarely].
