Could be anxiety or too much caffeine. On a more serious note, there are heart conditions that cause abnormally fast heart rate (tachycardia). Any heart rate over 100 is considered tachycardia, your heart rate gets over 100 easily when your active, it should be anywhere between 60-99 when your resting. If your heart rate is over 150, this is called supra-ventricular tachycardia (SVT) when its this fast it is important to go to the ER as your heart may not be able to effectively pump blood at this rate, and may become life threatening, wolf parkinson white syndrome can cause SVT and usually requires surgical intervention. If you experience a fast heart rate and/or palpitations often you should get this checked out, especially if it is accompanied by chest pain/difficulty breathing.

Just got a leaflet through the door telling all the symtoms of a heart attack , it says don t mess about waiting just call the emergency services. Now, I have those symtoms everyday, I also have high b.p. (last checked 120/170 only last week). Am I having heart attacks? Sorry, numbers wrong way round. Feel it like most days but thougt a heart attack was going to be of hollywood proportions, this leaflet describes what I feel.

I am a 24 and a half year old white female with 3 children ages 4 and under. My heart rate is normally on the higher side when I am pregnant and that s pretty much the only time I ever check it. But I ve been checking it a lot the past few days and every time it s been between 101-109bpm. Even after just waking up after sleeping. Sometimes I do feel like my heart is racing. Is this something I should get checked out by a doctor?
