Electrocardiogram interpretation help.

Hi. I had a dull pain in the centre of my chest today which made my heart feel funny, so i went the hospital and had an ECG test carried out. when the nurse left the room i took some snaps of the test results and i have been left a bit confused by the results. it states i have an abnormal ecg and it will not rule out a heart attack. i asked the doctor about this, and he said it always happens and not to be concerned. he said it looks like i have a healthy heart, and my level of exercise activity and tolerance prompted him to tell me i have a good cardiovascular system. he said all this after i told him i have an anxiety and panic disorder. so maybe he was kid of being over kind, as to not worry me.

anyway i am 28. male. 6"2. and a healthy weight. i do not smoke or over indulge in junk or fast food.
I am going to link a photo of my ecg. hopefully someone can shed some light on this for me. also note i am a bit concerned about the V3 reading. there seems to be little to no lower spike, as compared to healthy ecg's that i have seen on google.

Your ECG image is a bit fuzzy so it's difficult to say for sure, but it looks fine to me.  The reason the computer is calling it abnormal is a little blip in a couple of the leads which is a normal variant.  But I don't see any acute problems that would concern me.  You're a bit young to be having a heart attack, but it is possible.  If you continue to have chest pain, discuss it with your physician.  Hope this helps.
