No: That is too fast a resting heart rate for anyone except an infant. Causes of rapid resting rates are overactive thyroid or other endocrinopathies.fevers, anxiety, caffeine,alcohol,nicotine,certain medications containing adrenalin like substances. Your physician will take a thorough history, examine you and order appropriate tests. Referral to a cardiologist may be advised.
