Get an EKG: You should not have a heart rate of 130 at rest. Get an ekg and an exam. The fast heart rate could be an arrhythmia (abnormal heart rhythm) that can be easily treated. If it is a normal heart rhythm that is simply going fast, you could have hyperthyroidism, anemia, or a number of other problems, many of which are readily treatable.
