Anxiety: Is it sinus tachycardia? If you have no symptoms and pulse rate is not overly elevated - that might be why your doctor wasn't particularly concerned. I see that you suffer from an anxiety disorder. Sometimes heart rate can be elevated with anxiety. Education is often the best source of comfort.
