I am a 48 year old male. An Xray 6 months ago found mild

Resolved Question:

I am a 48 year old male. An Xray 6 months ago found mild LVH. My cardiologist did an ECG, blood work and listed to me etc and didnt seem to concerned. I have high blood pressure (under control with 10mg lisinopril daily), I have a fast pulse (Under control with 80mg inderal a day) and I have high cholestorol (improved from 8.8 to 5.8 with statins) - I just came back from having an ECG, It took 10 minutes to get a normal reading. The nurse kept asking me if I was stressed. if I was ok, whats wrong? etc. This happened the last time I had an ECG too. We finally got a normal reading but initially the lines were all over the place and the first few ECG's today read "non specific t wave abnormality" - I am due to have an echo this afternoon and see my cardiologist on Monday. Shall I wait until then or should I be concerned about the problems getting a normal ECG this morning, I felt relaxed while we were getting all of these weird readings - could this just be white coat syndrome? or is the fact that we finally got a normal reading all that really matters? I have no symptoms except a little breathlessness from time to time when pdoing housework and picking things up around the house, but can walk 4 km without any symptoms....
