Hi, thanks for using healthcare magic
Normally the heart is stimulated to beat from a certain point in the heart. From this point, a 'stimulus' travels to other aspects of the heart along a specific pathway to stimulate the rest of the heart to beat.Abnormal rhythm and rate of the heart beat can occur under different circumstances such as:(1) increase stimulation at the starting point (2) another point of the heart is producing a stimulating impulse (3) the 'stimulus' travels along another pathway or there is blockage along the normal pathway (4) any structural abnormality of the heart
An increase in heart rate
can occur with : anemia
, high levels of thyroid
hormone, caffeine, anxiety
, heart disease
Though persons who do not exercise have a higher baseline heart rate than those who exercise, it should not go over 100.
If the episodes of increase heart rate continue, you may want to consider visiting your doctor for an assessment which would include an ECG.
I hope this helps
