No: Ther's no correlation between the two and he clearly doesn't know what is giving you non specific st changes.

If the ECG is taken during the pain attack - you may not being lying still 100%. The machines are very sensitive and pick "noise -artifact" which can be read by the machine as "nonspecific ST changes". Junctional depression can be a normal variant. A history indicating risk factors is very important.
