Detail follows.

Detailed Answer:
Dear Friend.
Welcome to HCM.
I have reviewed your ECG.
If I see it in general without knowing details about you I would label it as normal except there is T wave inversion in lead V2 and V3 which requires attention.
With history of such a high blood pressure, I would consider these T wave changes significant and would advice you following:
1. To get a Tread Mill Test (TMT) done.
2. To get an ECHOCARDIOGRAPHY done.
3. To get Lipid profile, kidney function tests and blood sugar levels done.

Revert back with the reports.
If you have any further query feel free to ask me.
Stay Healthy.

Detailed Answer:
Dear Friend.
These T wave inversion can be due to ischemia and can also be due to old heart attack.
However it can be found normally too.
My sincere advise for you is to get the investigations as I have advised.
Revert back with investigations.
Stay Healthy.
