In brief: Not exactly
Not like a sore thumb! but if you have coronary artery disease, it's conceivable that rapid heart rate could precipitate angina - usually not described as being sore but as feeling heavy and associated with difficulty breathing.
The real question is: why is your heart rate "rapid for many hours? " you should be checked out.
