EKG Severity - BORDERLINE ECG -
SINUS RHYTHM
normal P axis, V-rate 50-99
BORDERLINE T WAVE ABNORMALITIES

Answer
Hi Amber,
T wave changes on your EKG can be the result of a number of issues, including heart disease, changes in your potassium levels, medications etc.  I'd recommend checking whether you are at risk for heart disease and consult with your doctor about possible causes and further evaluation.
