My heart rate sky rocketed from 75 to 162 BPM because of severe stress. Am i sensitive to stress? Or is it normal?

In brief: It happens

You describe "severe stress".
You certainly can elevate your heart rate dramatically from stress. If it happens rarely, it's likely normal. If it ever happens when you're NOT stressed, you likely have a primary rhythm problem that should be investigated.
