Yes: Awareness of irregular heartbeat is very common. Nearly every adult experiences it sometimes. Red flags are passing out, prolonged (over 2 min) of continuous rapid heart beat, or prolonged (over 10 minutes) constant irregularity. Alcohol in any amount, caffeine (coffee, cocoa), asthma/COPD meds are common causes. Other meds can also be a factor. If persistent, ask for a rhythm monitor.

Clindamycin: You didn't mention what the indication for Clindamycin was? Loss of appetite and infection may be related. That said, as you had a bad reaction to the Clindamycin, you're still recovering from that and more time is needed. Meanwhile, consider choosing only those foods that most appeal to you until you're back on your feet.

Probably not: Repeat the EKG and remind the technician to be sure the leads are correctly placed. He/she may need to run off a few tracings with leads V1, V2, and V3 in close but slightly different positions. It's VERY common for a computer to misread "Possible Anteroseptal Infarct" if the leads are not precisely placed. Unless you have had a bad bout of chest pain, it's unlikely that the reading's correct
