Anything over 100 beats per minute up to 150 beats per minute is considered Sinus Tachycardia. If you are at rest, a heart rate that high is abnormal and should be checked out. If you are exercising and you are a healthy adult, 130 beats per minute is a normal and expected response to the activity. Other things that can make your heart speed up over 100 beats per minute include stimulants like caffeine or cocaine, anxiety, pain, and cardiac disease. Again, if you find your heart is beating greater than 100 bpm at rest, see a doctor.

I took an illicit substance. A stimulant. And my heart rate is around 120-130 beats per minute. Is this dangerous? Or will I be okay and am i panicking for no reason? I do realize the risks and am aware of the affects of using these substances and do not intend to do so again in the future given this experience. Please answer FAST! I am concerned.

My son (13) recently told me his heart starts beating up real fast. This morning he showed me and I could see it through his chest how hard his heart was beating. In a one minute count I counted over 130 beats. He has complained of some chest pain, though it has stopped the last three weeks. There was no pain or breath problems while I noticed his heart rate. Do you have any idea? My son is too skinny and is shorter than a lot of boys of his age. Please advice me. Thanks
