In brief: No.

Usually anxiety doesn't cause an abnormal ekg.
Anxiety can make your heart rate faster, but shouldn't affect the electrical conduction of the heart. The cardiologist who did your original ekg would be a great person to get a second opinion on this. Good luck!

In brief: Possibly

Anxiety can cause a rapid heart rate and sometimes skipped beats, but is not associated with other ekg abnormalities.
