Evaluation: Elevated heart rates can cause uncomfortable sensations in the chest. This should be evaluated with a cardiac monitor, an echocardiogram and, depending on your risk factors, possibly a stress test. You are young to have coronary disease, but i worry about someone with symptoms like this at a high heart rate.

Possibly: Anxiety can cause excess cortisol, os adrenaline secretion which can cause a number of symptoms, including dizziness, lightheadedness, rapid heart beat palpitations, chestpain, headaches, etc. Try calming yourself down by concentrating on slowing down your breathing over a few minutes if this doesn't help, see your primary provider for further evaluation. Good luck!
