Other than a slightly elevated heart rate (maybe due to testing), results seem fine. Heart palpitations are usually caused by stress, anxiety, or caffeine and are insignificant. You say you suffer from anxiety so that is probably the principal reason. But if you continually feel faint or dizzy every time you have these palpitations, if you have chest pain, if problem persists or gets worse, this may be cause to consult and do some more checks. A Stress test and echocardiogram would rule out any problems.

Thanks for the query..

Your symptoms are probably due to anxiety as the reports does not show any major abnormalities..

So my suggestion is to start doing meditation and deep breathing exercises.

Keep yourself busy with work or studies whetever you do.

In case if the symptoms does not improve you should consult a Physician and get evaluated.
A 2D Echo cardiogram can help confirmation.

Hope this helps..
