EKG

what does inverted T-way mean?
290383_tn?1193103921
The T-wave is part of the EKG that refers to the  repolarzation of the heart.  The T-wave may be normally inverted in certain leads such as lead 3 .  Depending on the location and extent of T-wave inversion it may indicate a heart problem.

I'm a 23 yr old female with no risks for HD but I have inverted t waves in all leads on my EKG.  There is no ST segment abnormalities or anything. I'm wondering could this be due to me being anemic?
