thanks for choosing health care magic.You seems to very much concerned with something.Your symptoms could be due to some stress which leads to anxiety and whenever our body has stress it leads to release of set of hormones which increase heart rate.So first try to look for any obvious reasons.In mean while also get your blood pressure checked.If needed please take help of your doctor.
