I had a treadmill stress test the other day and my heart rate went up to 130+ in 90 seconds. They stopped the test. I was very short of breath during the test because I was in Afib. They also took a ECG. The doctor on call later said not enough blood was getting to my heart. My question is would the Afib cause that?

Hi..
Yes, Again or Atrial Fibrillation can be a cause that can cause lack.of blood to heart..
Consult a Cardiologist and get evaluated..
Investigations like Echocardiography, ECG, Chest x ray can be done for further confirmation and treatment can be done according to the severity..

Hope this helps..
