Hi there, This reading is not normal. And I am little surprised at your age this type of reading. This means you did have a heart attack some time in the past affecting your anterior and lateral suraface of the heart. The affected muscles do not conduct electricity normally and that reflects in the EKG which measures heart electrical response. You should go to the ER for furthe evaluation to prevent any further damage. Best wishes, It was my pleasure to help you today.
