I had this ECG done at the ER last week, I presented with symptoms of chest tightness and ache, shortness of breath, dizzy spells and a sensation of irregular heart beat. On the same day, in the morning, I woke up with epigastric discomfort and shortly thereafter I felt what seemed to be an episode of tachycardia, followed by nausea, shivers and the symptoms outlined above. The symptoms persisted and at night I went to the ER. Normal BP and heart rate on admission. I was referred for an ECG, told it was normal and my symptoms were anxiety-related. I was given 10 mg of diazepam and discharged.
However, after examining my ECG, I find it a bit bizarre, especially on leads III and avF. This said, my question is: what do the nothed S wave in lead III and the rsR' complex in lead aVF mean? Should I worry and see my cardiologist as soon as possible?
