Welcome to HCM.
Some time due to hyperactive work is caused for increase heart rates and with it there is always increase in oxygen demand in the body and you feel is normal with hyperactive state,heavy exercise,after climbing stairs... but it gets normal after 10 to 20 minutes rest but if it persists than go for cardiac evalution,x_ray chest and haemogram to rule out cause. consult your physician for furher medical management.
