Hello and welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Heart rate may increase normally in conditions like anxiety, physical exertion, fear etc. It is normal variant and nothing to worry about it.
You can go for a thyroid function test as conditions like hyperthyroidism can cause eleveated heart rate and palpitations.
However it is better to consult a cardiologist and take serial EKG to rule out abnormal rhythm even though it is unlikely.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

I have hypothyroidism, last March 6 I started having heart palpitations and I shake constantly, they switched me from Synthroid to Nature Throid, after 4 months the palpitations were almost not noticable, and the shaking was better by half. Now it is starting all over again, I am having the heart palpitations, and I shake all the time, my shaking seems worse when I first wake up.
