Not much: Q waves may indicate previous scarring from infarction or other process or may be completely normal or from a conduction abnormality (hemiblock or accessory pathway). Was the stress test with imaging? If the imaging was normal and the ECG is otherwise normal, the Q waves are probably meaningless.

Diaphragmatic : Deep narrow q wave in the inferior leads may be due to diaphragmatic motion!
