Positive GXT with ST Depression

I recently had a Q_Stress test and received the following report
1-Resting ECG Normal
2-Spirometry is in normal limits
3-Tested on a stationary bike for 10:06min with moderate resistance
4-Achieved 91% max predicted heart rate
5-Mets achieved 4.6
6-no reported sympmtoms
7-BP behavior was normal
8-BP normal at rest
CONCLUSION- POSITIVE GXT WITH ST DEPRESSION IN INFERIOR LEADS: NO CHEST PAINS
I am 59 5'10" 250LBS
My question is: i would like to have an explanation as to what the results indicate, I quite frankly am VERY concerned since I have never had any heakth problems. Should I be concerned??
HELP!

Hello
Unfortunately,there is nothing in the report of findings to explain the summarizing statement of st depression. StT depression in the inferior leads describes ekg changes that occur with exercise which may suggest some type of reversible problem, ie ischemia, but with the insufficient information, it is unclear. call the lab and ask for a preliminary explanation from your doctor or physician
