If the emotion clearly precedes the rhythm, and the rhythm is something called sinus tachycardia, it's generally an anxiety or panic issue.
If the fast rhythm started before any anxiety or emotional state, a rhythm is frequently to blame. An electrophysiologist is a type of cardiologist who can help.
