A rapid heart rate or tachycardia has many possible causes. One may have a rapid heartbeat from anxiety or fever or a hyperactive thyroid, other unknown illnesses or possibly due to underlying heart disease. The best thing is to go to your family doctor and be examined and have an EKG and ask what further testing could be done based on your symptoms. Depending on the findings, the doctor may recommend a Holter monitor, echocardiogram, lab work or other diagnostic testing. Meanwhile, it is best to cut down on the caffeine and make sure you are not taking medications that can speed up your heart rate. I hope this is helpful.
