T wave abnormalities are relatively common and very non-specific. Could just mean mild high blood pressure. If the echo and the stress test (i assume it was a walking stress test) were perfect, you should not be worried. Very small (almost no) chance that those 2 tests are wrong and ekg right.

inaccurate especially for women with coronary artery heart diseases. They require men to have two large coronary arteries with greater than 75% blockages to be detectable. At the same time, they produce high false positive tests sending patients to unnecessary interventional procedures. Women do worse with stress nuclear or echo, find a center offering MCG testing a.k.a Multifunction Cariogram!
