Maybe normal: T wave changes are very non-specific, meaning there is specific cause. They can occur with hyperventilation, anxiety, drinking hot or cold beverages, and positional changes. They should be interpreted keeping the symptoms, patient history and physical exam in mind. If you have specific concern seek the advise of a cardiologist.

ECG: Don't freak, nonspecific T wave abnormality means very little. It's the next thing to normal. An ice cube on your skin can cause it. When you get anxious ask the doc to explain.
