In brief: Multiple reasons

There can be many reasons for a rapid heart rate.
Anxiety can produce this, because it leads to feeling constantly threatened and "on alert." other possibilities include being physically de-conditioned, dehydrated, hyperthyroid, and many others. Best to work with your own physician on this because s/he can examine you and get appropriate studies as needed.
