EKG help

Patient

Q: I went to my doctor with a heart rate of over 100. I was given an EKG and told the results were abnormal. I was admitted to the hospital for observation. Over the course of my hospital stay I was hooked up to a heart monitor and given two more EKGs. The next day I met with a cardiologist who said after he looked at all my information that in his opinion my EKGs were NOT abnormal. He released me from the hospital and set up a Hostel and Echo-Doppler tests for this monday. Is this a normal occurrence when "hospital staff" and "specialists" disagree when it comes to EKGs?
