Hello.. Thanks for writing us..

Mafucci syndrom is a rare condition , associated with multiple soft tissue Hemangiomas, enchondromas over hands and feet but some times other tumors of internal body organ also( THYROID, PARATHYROID etc)
As you told heart rate reaches upto 90, this is not worrysome but she is really feeling palpitations

You consult a physician or cardiologist and get Thyroid profile, ECG, ECHO and if required holter monitoring also to detect the cause , It may be sinus tachycardia, extra systole or some sustained arrhytthmia

I will be happy to answer you after getting all report

Best wishes
