In brief: Look further

Anxiety, anemia and hyperthyroid state are other considerations.
Fast heart rate could be an arrhythmia. Sometimes it may look normal on ekg and called inappropriate sinus tachycardia or sinus node reentrant tachycardia which may require treatment with beta blockers. You should see both your internist and a cardiologist.
