User:My pulse was 103 yesterday when I went to see the doctor. I have a burning cessation through my entire body. I am a 27 year old female. My blood pressure was 120/82. When I went on the 19th of this month my blood pressure was 117/73 pulse 101. I didn't have the burning until yesterday. Is this normal?
Doctor:I have gone through your query
Doctor:burning sensation all over the body is not a very specific symptom
User:They placed me on Zoloft for my Anxiety on 2/19/2014.
Doctor:it is quite understandable
User:It starts in my head and goes through my entire body. Like someone lit a match
User:but should I be worried about my pulse? being that it is 103 yesterday when I went in there.
Doctor:Anxiety does cause your heart to beat faster
User:so 103 pulse is fine with 120/82 blood pressure
Doctor:We doctors do not take the reading of pulse and blood pressure independently
Doctor:these are physiological variables
Doctor:they vary depending on your both physical as well as mental state
Doctor:when you are anxious, your body produces more adrenalin, that results in a faster heart beat
Doctor:Is there anything else I can help you with?
Doctor:are you there?
Doctor:Hello, are you there?
