Hello doctor,

This is regarding my father. On the first of this month, he got an ECG,  which was normal. On the third, he had a little pain in his chest and his left hand. On the fourth, he got an ECG done again, which showed abnormalities in the Q waves. He was recommended a 2D echo and TMT. Both came back normal. On the seventh, we got an ECG done again, which showed normal results. What should we conclude?

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • Q wave abnormalities to a certain extent in certain leads are inconclusive. If the overall TMT,  cardiac echo, and ECG are normal, there is no need to worry. Be on a follow-up with ur cardiologist.
  • Take Pantop DSR (a combination of Pantoprazole and Domperidone), once daily before breakfast for three weeks. Sometimes, a chest pain may be due to GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease) as well.
  • Avoid spicy, fried, and hot foods. Do not rest immediately after meals. You can get an upper gastrointestinal endoscopy done to confirm the diagnosis.
