Hi.. Any pulse rate which is more than 100 beats per minute is not normal.. Pulse rate is governed by many factors.. A few are due to response to physiologically normal circumstances such as anxiety and stress.. A few of the condition are abnormal ones.. A resting pulse rate, like the one which is seen when you are sleeping is more important in differentiating normal causes from abnormal ones.. So if your resting pulse is still high, you may need evaluation by a doctor...

I'm a 26 year old man who is admittedly out of shape. For about the past 24 hours I have been feeling discomfort in my heart, about the time I had an argument with a spouse. We have since resolved the issue, but I still feel the discomfort in my heart. Using a stethoscope I have I recorded my heart rate at 78 beats per minute, but it seems to speed up and slow down inconsistently. I take no medication. I'd like o figure out what this is and how to fix it.
