sinus arrhythmia

In my anatomy lab I got an ECG done, my professor said I had a sinus arrhythmia...? Is this something I should be worried about? I have had two previous ECGs in the ER and in a walk in clinic and no one said anything about an arryhthmia. Do I need to be worried about working out or doing cardio exercise? I have always been in the gym, so I have never had any previous problems.

nothing to be concerned about Sinus arrhythmia: The normal increase in heart rate that occurs during inspiration (when you breathe in). This is a natural response and is more accentuated in children than adults.
