Hi welcome to HCM.

I understand your query and concern.
Elevated heart rate in your case can be due to intrinsic cardiac lesions.In the absence of organic heart lesions elevated heart rate need not be of any significant concern.This needs to be assessed through a baseline ECG and echo.Drugs like anxiolytics like alprazolam will help to control the stress and reduce the heart rate.Regular physical exercise like brisk walking will helpful to heart rhythm.Reduce the intake of fat and fried stuff.Reduce the intake of salt to less than 6 g/day.Occasionally drugs like beta blockers will help to control the heart rate.Consult an expert cardiologist for further help.Post your further queries if any.
Thank you.

I feel kind of silly asking this, but my heart rate (resting) has been elevated all day -- ranging from 107 early am, up and down from 130 - 180 most of the day. I ve been having episodes like this for several months, but not this bad or long lasting. I guess I m just not sure what to do. Bp avgs 120/78 - 130/88.

I was feeling a little nauseated and uncomfortable, but I figured it was because I hadn t eaten in a while. I went to Subway and while standing in line I suddenly felt like I was going to faint, so I went and sat down, and found that I felt cold and I was shaking, and felt my heart pounding. I also was told I had dark purple marks under my eyes.
