In brief: Objective values

Some people are more heart aware than others.
Sometimes patients think they have a high heart rate when in reality it is within normal and appropriate range. Objective evaluation by pulse meter or electrocardiographic monitoring is necessary to fully answer your question. Ask your health care provider to evaluate you at rest and during exercise to relieve your concerns.
