Hello @yellowdoggirl. I can see how you would feel frustrated left translating your results.

Reference info: "The result is positive if your blood pressure decreases and you feel dizziness or faint during the test. The result is negative if your heart rate increases only slightly, your blood pressure doesn't drop significantly, and you don't have signs or symptoms of fainting."

Did you take the test while on any of your medication?

Thank you so much@amandajro!
Yes, as instructed I took levothyroxine and Omeprazole about 5AM, then (I think) B12, crestor Eliquis, and maybe Plaquenil.
No coffee! Or anything else.
I don't remember very well. The test was at 11. When I got home in the early afternoon, I took the rest and ate.
The metoprolol I take at bedtime.
Did I do the wrong thing?
Thank you again!

One more question: wouldn't anyone's blood pressure drop after the nitroglycerine??
