Non-Specific T-Wave Abnormality

    Jack, what do you think some of the causes of this are? I had an EKG in 2014 that showed normal and the one I got yesterday showed non specific t-wave abnormality. The T axis had a value of 1.

    I've been reading about it but it seems pretty multi factorial... I'm wondering what changes you see in patients with developing cardiac issues?... What's one of the first signs to look for in regards to cardiomyopathy? What does this abnormality signify to you? I'm getting an echo done and a holter monitor for weird electrical sensations over the past three weeks.. but its concerning and my stress doesn't help.

    For some context, I've never had any issues with my heart other than.. some episodes of on/off ectopic beats over the past two years. I had one EKG per year that showed them to be normal.... A lot of green tea or yerba or coffee may have contributed. Upping magnesium sometimes helped but over the course of the last month, the sensations have changed. they are like lightning bolt sensations.. which could be coming from degeneration in my cervical spine, but also shortness of breath. Sometimes I wake up in the night, sweating.. my pulse is at 140 and it feels heavy to breathe. Some strange left arm pain as well.

    Only about 8% of patients with ACS present with normal ECGs, but many others are labeled initially as having only “nonspecific” T-wave changes. This study’s findings suggest that we consider T-wave abnormalities as markers of ischemic heart disease and that the deeper the inversion, the higher the risk. When T-wave abnormalities are not known to be preexisting, they should be considered as new ECG changes, and patients should be admitted to a hospital or ED observation unit accordingly.

    Thank you for any input!

    Most causes of heart electrical abnormalities are related to the environment you choose.

    Hi Alison,
    So sorry for your suffering. Agree with Jack re ENVIRONMENT.
    Where are the Smart Meters for your apartment and for the building you live in?
    Could they be triggers for you?

    T waves for me speak to mitochondrial heteroplasmy expansion for some reason.
