Heart rate: HR can go up to 100 or even higher without significant activities, however there is usually some excitement or other factor, if average HR at rest is 100 or above you need to be checked. Sometimes other factors such as anemia, hyperthyroidism can elevate your heart rate besides some rhythm problems.
