I am a 29 year old male. not diabetic. non smoker. not obese. dont drink. no family history of heart disease. about 3 months ago i had a bout of anxiety an recorded an ECG which showed the following:1) Sinus Tachycardia 137 bpm 2) Possible inferior myocardial infarction with posterior extension probably old. I never had an episode of chest pain and follow up ECHO was normal. Should I be worried?

Unless there are Q waves in the inferior leads that clearly showed a previous myocardial infarction then a probable /possible diagnosis is unlikely.
