Mark Zweben M.D.'s Expert Contributions
Normal heart rates are considered between 60-100. It can be normal for the HR to increase mildly due to things that increase adrenaline such as anger, excitement, anxiety, caffeine, other stimulant etc. Absent any obvious source of adrenaline or stimulant, outside influences on the HR would include infection, inflammation, anemia, high thyroid levels among other things. What would clue us in to a more specific diagnosis is other symptoms such as palpitstions, shortness of breath, dizziness, excessive sweating, weight loss, symptoms of infection or inflammation or pain. I hope this helps a little. Feel free to reply with more questions or added information you might have Mark Zweben, MD FACC READ MORE
