Follow up...: You need to see a Cardiologist for testing and evaluation. There is no way to surely tell you without formal evaluation. However, flattened T waves suggest there could be a cardiac issues going on but other tests: stress test, echocardiogram, cardiac catheterization may provide a more reliable answer. If you get recurrent chest pain then you should go to the ED.
