Brief Answer:
Not dangerous

Detailed Answer:
Dear Mrs,

Most likely your symptoms are related to stress.
100-110 bpm pulse is not dangerous. Sometimes we see similar heart rates or even higher in people who had a stress recently.
I think there is nothing to worry, but if it doesn't stop in a week you can see your doctor to perform an ECG.
In case you notice irregular and fast pulse which lasts more than 3-5 minutes, then refer to ER.

Hope I could help you

Wishing you good health
