Your HR is around 150, there are rate related changes and nothing else.

You should have 24 hour tape to monitor what is going on.

24 hour ecg tape will give the better idea what exactly is going on and causing the problem.

What is rate related changes

When heart rate goes higher, there is related ischaemia as well,
