ecg and cxr results.

I recently had an ecg and cxr done as a work up for what was determined to be muskuloskeletal chest pain.  The ecg report states
VENTRICULAR RATE 64
Normal sinus rhythm
Nonspecific T wave abnormality
When compared with ECG of 29-DEC-2009 21:38,
Nonspecific T wave abnormality now evident in Anterior leads  

the Chest x-ray report was
Cardiac size at the upper limits of normal.
Normal pulmonary vascularity. Lungs clear. Tortuous aorta

I do have a history of post partum cardiomyopathy diagnosed in 2000 and completely resolved by 2001.  I am a bit concerned and wondering if I should be pushing harder for any other tests/consultations?

Hello and hope you are doing well.

Do you have any related symptoms like chest pain or breathlessness now? Based on this further work up may be needed. An ECHO could help to study structural defects of the heart and assess the ejection fraction, which is  the pumping capacity of the heart.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
