Hi murali;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
The normal heart rate of a person is between 70-90/min and if you walk ;run or do work the heart beat increases so if the heart beat is 100/min after walking it is normal.The problem of swelling and pain in a single leg (left leg) is not normal also the breathing problem is not normal.Please get examined by a Physician and investigated immediately to rule out DVT(Deep Vein Thrombosis).It can also be phlebitis if it is red and inflammed or TAO (thrombo angitic obliterance ) if you are a chronic smoker.Please write your age and better get investigated and treated.

Hearbeating more than 100 times is not a problem. Everyone will face that issue.
