Hello, possible causes of such fast heart rate in young people with pale skin needs simple blood tests to check for hemoglobin levels. Other causes of sudden rise in heart rate are abnormal heart rhythms which need to be tested with tests like holter monitoring. Hyper functioning of the thyroid can also lead to such symptoms so blood test to check for thyroid hormone levels should also be considered.
