Common: The problem with the heart rate can be due to slight anxiousness about the procedure or what is involved. Also you do not drink any caffeine like coffee or cappuccino as this can cause the heart to be slightly tachycardia or rapid rate. Usually is nothing bad and if no other symptoms would just watch. Hope this helped and good luck.
