Brief Answer: Please refer to the following answer. Detailed Answer: Hi, Having slight changes in the EKG would not necessarily to be related to any heart problems. However, if your doctors decided to wait and get another one, that is to confirm the slight changes. Do not worry! Wait until the next EKG to get the final diagnosis!
