Answer

Hi Suky:

Have you been assessed for your increased heart rate? Normal range is 60-100 beats per minute. So you are on the upper end. With aging sometimes there may be a heart rhythym irregularity. So you would want to be assessed to have this evaluated because sometimes some heart arrthymias can be serious.

Here are a couple links that explains further on arrhythmias and tachycardia (fast heartbeat):
