Detailed Answer:
Hello!

Welcome on Ask a Doctor service!

Regarding your concern, I would explain that the presence of palpitations with that suposedly inverted T wave raise a suspicion of cardiac arrhythmia.

Coming to this point, I recommend discussing with your cardiologist for a physical exam coupled with a resting ECG, and if necessary an ambulatory ECG monitoring (Holter).

Hope to have been helpful to you!

Let me know in case of any further questions.

Kind regards,

Dr. Iliri
