I have inverted t waves on EKG at leads V2 and V3. Never any symptoms. Have had this abnormality for many years. I have applied for individual health insurance and hoping that this is not a problem. Have never had heart attack or chest pain. BP is controlled well with meds. Please advise. Thanks!

Thanks for the query.

T wave inversions from V1 to V3 may be a normal variant in many individuals more so in women.

Since you are asymptomatic and that the variation has been there for long time in all probability it is just a normal variant and not a cause for concern.

I hope i have answered your query.I will be available for follow up.
