Irregular heart beat, nausea, pain in the chest, low body fast percentage. Cause?

My average heart bpm is 108 I m 17 5 1 and 120lbs why does my heart race at this pace while resting. I have been told that I have an irregular heart beat and that it beats faster than usual but I m feeling nauseated and pain in my chest not heavy pain though? Is there any answer for this? I also have low body fat percentage .

Dear patient,

Resting tachycardia is not normal in the abscence of an explanation; with a low body fat, a hyperactive thyroid needs to be ruled out; other causes such as infection, dehydration, fever, pain need to be considered. You need an EKG to see what the underlying rhythm of the heart is.

Truly yours,
