Wave: My best guess would be Non-Specific ST-T wave changes which is most likely non diagnostic, but it may also signal early ischemic changes.

EKG: Non-specific ST-T wave changes. Means minor repolarization change in a region of the heart. Can appear with hi bp, electrolyte change, minor ischemia, thyroid disorder, or be meaningless.

Electrocardiogram: Nonspecific ST-T wave electrocardiographic changes. It is due to a reading that has an abnormality that isn't related to a specific conditions. It is more than just a variation but doesn't necessarily imply any real significant issue.

NSSTTWC: Nonspecific ST-T wave changes are just that nonspecific. Certain parts of the ECG aren't quite normal. Can be caused by heart problem or electrolyte abnormalities like low potassium, or by nothing. Thanks for trusting HealthTap!

Nothing to worry: Nonspecific ST-T wave electrocardiographic changes. However, ask your doc about risk factors such as family history of heart disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, high blood sugar and smoking to make sure everything is alright.
