Detailed Answer:
Hi and thank you for asking!
I read your query and understood your concerns.

Your ecg reports say that you have had probably an anterior myocardial infarction (M.I) because of the negative T-waves on anterior leads. These are ecg machine reports that aren't accurate and need to be confirmed by a cardiologist.

This is why the ecg image and it's report should be checked by a cardiologist. Can you upload the ecg image for me?

I'm Waiting for the ecg image to be uploaded!
Wish you health!

Ecg report uploaded

Despite uploading ecg report as desired, I have not got a response, which is unethical. Please respond early.

Brief Answer:
Following advice.

Detailed Answer:
Hi back,
Sorry for my delayed response.

After reviewing your Ecg image I would like to say that the negative T waves are present only in V3 which has no significance. There's no sign of previous or recent Myocardial infarction and you shouldn't worry about it.

However in order to reasure you and to definitely exclude any cardiac problems you should schedule doing the following examinations :
- Cardiac echo
- Stress test

Hope this will be of help!
Wish you health!
