Thanks for asking.
Increased heart rate
when surprised or anxious shall occur in many apparently healthy individuals.
when a person can feel an abnormality in the normal beating of the heart, it is termed Palpitation
Also in daily life, When we consume some stimulants of heart or brain like
- OTC medications such as pseudoephedrine
, which is found in cold preparations, we may get palpitations
As for you concerned, If you are a Female, I shall advice you to rule out Anaemia or hyperthyroidism
, which are potential causes of Palpitation.
Otherwise,If there is NO difficulty in breathing on exertion,chest pain
or fainting episodes, we shall consider this increased heart rate as normal.
