I was at the doctor today and had an EKG, the results read Normal Sinus rhythm with shorteded PR interval.   Is this something that I should be concerned about?

If the rhythm was Normal Sinus, you should not worry  about the PR interval. your doctor could have pointed out any concerns.

You replied to Missy about now worrying over a short PR interval if she is in normal sinus rhythm.  I too have been diagnosed with the same thing after an episode where my heart raced at 175 bpm.  This is still there 6 weeks later and I am more than a little concerned. Can you be sure that a short PR interval really is nothing to worry about as It really would make me feel a lot better to know that.  I cant get any answers from the doctors.

If there were a problem, a shortened PR interval would almost always cause a faster than normal heart rate, etc.  And an abnormal EKG wave form requires further evidence, and apparently your doctor doesn't have any additional evidence to support a finding, and you shouldn't be concerned.
