Early repolarization: For peace of mind you could consult an electrphysiologist. There are different patterns of st segment elevations that are more concerning than others. St elevations in the inferior and lateral leads are considered potentially more serious but still low risk. St elevations in the precordial leads that are concave up and with normal T waves are felt to be benign. Discuss this with your cardiologist
