Finding not a diagno: Assuming ur EKG was collected correctly (i.e., the wires & patches were put on correctly), it's not entirely as expected for a person of your age & gender. You have sinus rhythm, but the spikes (R waves) do not progress between the wires as expected, & minor changes in the signals from the front (anterior) & bottom (inferior) part of the heart may be "just you" or signs of (prior?) damage.

Several: An EKG to see what the exact rhythm is and to look for other abnormalities. A history and physical examination. You may have a heart murmur or appear pale if you have anemia for instance. Blood tests to exclude anemia or an overactive thyroid gland for instance. A holter monitor to catch and record the abnormal rhythm. An echocardiogram to evaluate heart function and the valves.

Some, plus drugs: Depending on the cause & severity of the arrhythmia, relaxation techniques (medication, yoga, tai-chi) may be useful. Some anti-anxiety medications can be helpful as well. Beta-blockers are often used. Serious anti-arrhythmic agents are available, but some rhythm problems, especially in younger patients, may be amenable to electrophysiologic rx, like ablation, rather than lifelong drug therapy.

A 39-year-old female asked:

My 17year old son just had a 12 lead ECG done it showed t wave inversions in ii, iii, avf & v4. Could the barium from an ugi series cause this?

Nonspecific: T wave inversion may be part of a normal ekg and has to interpreted by a doctor. Inverted t wave is normal in iii and sometimes other leads without meaning anything alarming. Have the doctor let you know what they think. The ekg interpretation can change with age as well so you need expertise to read them at this age.
