Heart rate: As long as your heart is structurally and functionally normal with a satisfactory holter Study and if you have no symptoms then you have nothing to worry about. It is also important that conditions such as thyroid disorder,Lyme disease etc. be excluded. The detailed history and physical examination and possible blood tests should help to establish this.
