How will head-up tilt table test feel?

ANSWER

You may feel nothing at all, or you may feel like passing out. Some people do pass out. It is important to tell your doctor or nurse about any symptoms you feel.

As part of the test, your doctor may give you a medication called Isuprel or a nitroglycerin spray under your tongue. This may make you feel nervous or jittery. You may feel your heart beat faster or stronger. This feeling will go away as the medication wears off.
