I have been having terrible nausea for several weeks and it has been hard to eat. I suspect it's an electrolyte imbalance..what can I do to help with this? I have been drinking coconut water and electrolyte water today. is this okay to do?

I can, but this is something you should ask your physician. An EKG should always be interpreted along with the symptoms, suggested diagnosis, etc. And I'm not even a healthcare professional.

Your heart rate is a bit rapid. Why? Did the EKG or consultation stress you? Your other numbers are essentially normal. The only thing confusing me a bit is your ST-T abnormalities, to evaluate them, someone (your doctor preferrably) should see the actual EKG, not just the description of it.

What you should NOT do, is self-diagnosing electrolyte imbalances and try to "cure" them, based on some EKG numbers. I strongly suggest you talk to your doctor about both your EKG and your electrolyte worries before you start "treating" something. Electrolyte imbalances are easy to find with a simple blood test. Go to your doctor today and get those blood tests and an interpretation of your EKG.

Talk to your doctor about the ST-T abnormalities - sometimes this is "normal".  This happened to me.  I worried about it for a week till I saw my doctor and was told by him and a research fellow who was on rounds with him that "nonspecific" was the key word...but you must talk to your doctor.

there's so many things that could cause nausea and other symptoms you're having but please ask your dr about the electrolyte panel as the others as said; sometimes adding too much of something can be just as harmful as not having enough of a certain element.

I had non stop nausea that they could not find the cause...dr's were going to scope me, do all these expensive tests and thought I had a non functioning gall bladder when I said WHOA enough...do a simple blood test, urinalysis and stool test to check for infections...sure enough I had H.Pylori in 3 tests and a simple 2 wk albeit disgusting round of meds got rid of it and I've not had nausea that I had for 2 years straight.

many of us have had non specific abnormalities and sometimes it's nothing really...I think the machine over senses things sometimes and worries us patients..ask your dr to do another one...it still could be an imbalance but def ask your doctor about testing to see
