Hi welcome to HealthcareMagic

Your heart rate mildly increased , normal range is from 60 to 100 beats per minute... you must measure the heart rate only after taking rest for 5 to 10 minutes, otherwise there will be increase in the heart rate after the exercise or running, climbing, any kind of exertion will increase the HR... repeat the HR once more..... do not worry much....

Hi Sandeep.

You mentioned that your heart rate is high even in normal condition and at rest. Normally the resting heart rate should be between 60 - 100.
Also you said you have cough.

You will need to undergo following investigations.
1. Hemoglobin - People with low or borderline Hb have increased heart rate
2. TSH for evaluation of thyroid functions
3. Chest X ray for evaluation of your Cough
4. ECG

This will give a clear picture of what we are dealing with.

Hope this answers your query.

Thanks and Regards
Dr Kiran
