Detailed Answer:
Hi and thank you for asking to HCM!

You have nothing to worry about as long as basal ECG is normal. Your heart rate is slightly above normal range (60-100 beats per minute) and it's called tachycardia.

Tachycardia is a common finding in peoples with mitral valve prolaps, but without any clinical significance.

However I suggest running ECG holter monitoring to exclude other tachyarhythmias which may be not seen on basal ECG.

Hope this was of help!
