Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

rsR' pattern is called Right Bundle Branch Block / said to be complete or incomplete depending on the duration. The common cause is delay in the conduction in the right nerve. It is commonly seen in many normal people and an incidental finding. At times, it is due to volume overload of the right side - like Atrial Septal Defect and so on.

qR pattern has different connotations like posterior infarct, some forms of Cardiomyopathy and so on.

Left atrial anomaly may be a conduction delay or chamber enlargement.

You should see your cardiologist.
You need further investigations for proper assessment

And EKG should not be read in isolation - it should always be correlated with clinical examination and total picture

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
