Allow me to preface this by advising that I will be getting my butt into a cardiologist's office next week, but would be grateful for any feedback, opinions, or other banter!
Summary: Moved to Florida in May and had first annual physical today, inclusive of EKG. EKG showed a negative T-wave in Lead III. What gives???
Details: 40 year old male, no history of arrhythmia, screened negative for HCM 7-8 years ago (EKG & Echo), completely asymptomatic. Ironman triathlete, 12-15 hours of typically high intensity training weekly without any issue. No family history of cardio issues.
Medical: Hashimoto's Thyroiditis (hypo); previously had somewhat elevated LDL levels, but calcium score test showed Zero risk; Full blood panel a year ago showed normal LDL levels.
The doctor (today) was not able to properly explain potential reasons for my inverted T wave and simply ordered an echo. I'm not a medical professional, but have been surrounded by medicine my entire life - ironically even becoming passionate about HCM screening.
Any theories? False reading? Perhaps bad lead placement? HCM and I'm going down on my next bike ride?
Appreciate any and all thoughts.
