Tachycardia: Do consume coffee, tea, energy drinks? ANY caffeine containing food or beverage can cause tachycardia or rapid heart rate. Do you take any medication. Also consider tobacco as possible cause. Assuming your thyroid function and other labs were normal. And. If all fails you might need to a Electrophysiology (EP) cardiologist.
