Records say "Abnormal ECG" but medical assistant said it was normal...

ECG says:  Sinus rhythm, possible anterior infarct, low QRS voltages in precordial leads....what does this mean?

Hi, what about the limb leads? did they have low QRS voltage? Low voltage waves may be due to underlying myocardial disease, pericardial effusion, lung disease, severe hypothyroidism, obesity or edema. There is the possibility of anterior infarct also. You have to consult your cardiologist. Based on your symptoms he may ask for further testing with ECHO and stress test. Please follow up with him. Regards.

Thank you so much for your answer.  I appreciate your help and opinion.  Yes, the limb leads have low QRS voltage.  I am on Metroprolol for rapid heart rate, which was 156 resting pulse before Metroprolol.
