In brief: Revved Up

If there is no physical cause (such as heart or thyroid problems), these symptoms may be a sign of an anxiety disorder.
In anxiety disorders the brain tells the body to stay in "panic" mode. Think of it like this - too much adrenaline when it is not needed, so the heart rate goes up, blood pressure goes up, etc. Being in that state takes a lot of energy, which is why you feel tired and out-of-it.
