Heart beats very fast. What could cause this?

Hello! I have noticed that my heart beats so fast even though i didn t do any heavy work that would cause this to beat faster. I m just sitting and about to study but this feeling disturbs me. Just when this started, my beat count is 96 per minute. Which i think is not my normal heartbeat , unless i do something heavy. And i ve been feeling this for almost an hour. Checking it for the second time, i got 111 counts per minute. Why is this? it worries me somehow, especially im not home with my parents. I dont know what to do.

You must get your self examined by a doctor to look for any cardiac problem or any hyperthyroidism
Although it may only be an anxiety resulting in fast Heart beats,but still you must rule out the heart problem.
Just relax and may go to ER of some hospital and get a preliminary ECG done o look for any abnormality.
