You didn't say why you had a ecg done.  Was it just part of a routine physical exam, or are you experiencing unusual heart symptoms?

If you don't have any heart symptoms, and your doctor says "it was normal", what are you looking for?

An ecg/ekg (same thing) is a "snap-shot" in time.  So, if the heart is behaving as a normal heart when the ecg is taken, but there are other times when the heart is doing something else, the ecg will give a false reading from the perspective the overall health of the heart.

An at rest heart rate over 100 is usually considered probematic, needs treatment.  It may be simply a "rate-control" problem, which a beta blocker can treat, or it may be a sign of other problems.
