Hello,

A borderline ECG may or may not indicate that you have a heart problem. A borderline ECG is not 100% normal, but is also not clearly displaying the presence of a disease. The best way to manage a borderline ECG might be to repeat the test and see if the results are the same or different. Non specific inferior waves mean that there is no abnormality detected and does not mean anything. ECG readings are always studied and interpreted in context with clinical data and symptoms. They have meaning in presence of symptoms or disease otherwise they don't mean anything.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Vidya K. R., General & Family Physician
