I went to dr yesterday and was giving a breathing treatment. It made me jittery and i'm still having a very fast heart rate. Is this normal?

In brief: Yes

It should resolve over today, but you should avoid coffee, smoking, alcohol and other stimulants.
Broncho-dilators do have adrenaline-like effects on your nervous system. It is unusual for those effects to last more than a day. Relax as best you can. Then check back with your doctor if you have to.
