It depends: Even though the work up has been normal, you could still have inappropriate sinus tachycardia or supra ventricular tachycardia (avnrt for instance). If the tachycardia persists, you should see an electrophysiologist - doctor that specializes in heart rhythm disorders - and she or he can take a look at your tests and decide if something else needs to be done.
