Hi Heather,

Welcome to HCM.
High heart rate could be due to increased basal metabolic rate, which is related to thyroid or it could be due to anemia or any heart related problem or sinus tachycardia.
It is better that you consult a Physician and get a complete checkup done and if every thing is within normal limits, then you can ignore it.
Wish you all the best.
