None.: It is not uncommon for young adults to have Q waves. These are normal and are the first activation of the bottom of the heart, between the main pumping chambers, called the interventricular septum. After that, it splits into Left and Right sides but that first Q wave is picked up as the initial beat of the ventricles before spreading out into the main heart muscles that make the main Signal.
