ST depression can be a sign of Ischaemic Heart Disease.
Have you been having chest discomfort?

Ischaemic Heart Disease is a reduced blood supply to the heart muscle usually caused by a narrowing or blockage of the coronary arteries.
Depending on severity and location it can be treated by medication, inserting stents or bypass surgery.

Re: Has anyone had this result

T-wave inversions and "not sure about ST Depressions" can also be suggestive of LVH or "Left Ventricular Hypertrophy" I had more than a few of these that terrified the RN's but as soon as the cardiologist saw the EKG he told them all to calm down and relax. I suggest you follow up with cardiologist as it could be a number of things.

How old are you, are you hypertensive? Do you have a previous history of Heart problems?

Re: Has anyone had this result

I'm 42 and never had heart issues
I suffer from severe panic attacks and have health anxiety issues and this has left me in a very high state of anxiety where I'm not leaving my house or driving etc
I keep googling which isn't good and I keep promising myself I will stop

Re: Has anyone had this result

Hi I found a site on the net in which they said sugar can cause panic attacks so the next time a panic attack is suffered I would ask myself what was eaten in the last few hours and days.

Of course if one thinks he is having a heart attack and dying perhaps they should not be so afraid because some sources say that death is like a sleep and sleep is usually a nice thing to do. Usually there are no nightmares in sleep if one is healthy and if one does not eat food late in the evening. So I would suggest calming down out there. Peace, sjb
