The numbers are normal but you should ask your doctor if the EKG was normal. There is a lot more to an EKG than just the numbers.

If your heart rate on average is between 110 and 145, a cause must be found. Of course it may be anxiety, but people can have heart problems causing a rapid heart rate and also have anxiety.
