Detailed Answer:
Hi and thank you for asking!
I read your query and understood your concerns.

Based on the data you provided you are obese and have tachycardia. Tachycardia is a common finding in obese patients and you shouldn't worry to much about it.

However, you should do a couple of examinations to exclude any major health problems. If you were my patients I would recommend as follows:
-Blood work (for anemia)
-Hormonal balance to exclude any hormonal imbalance

Hope this will be of help!
Wish you health!
