My BP is normal but why my heart is beating faster than normal ?

Why is my blood pressure is normal but my heart is beating faster than normal? I take a bp test and while my bp is normal my heart is beating 88 times a minute and I was told that it should be about 70 beats per minute. Why does this happens? I am 30 years old, with BMI in the upper normal, I don t smoke ,I never drink any alcoholic drinks and I never abuse drugs. I rarely drink coffee and I didn t drink any before the test. I dislike tea and avoid it as much as I can.

There are TONS of things that can affect your heart rate. Activity level, stress, practically every emotion you can think of, it's perfectly normal for peoples heart rates to fluctuate during the day. That being said, the normal resting heart rate for adults is from 60-100 beats per minute. So your heart rate is just fine!
