1 doctor agrees

In brief: Pulses

Pulse > 90 is on the higher side but depends what you were doing , if moving it could be higher and some people run high.
Would check thyroid status as hyperthyroidism can cause elevated heart rate and make sure you are not taking too much tea( caffeine -more than 2 cups may be too much for some), or products containing phenylephrine pseudoephriine as they can raise pulse. f/u /w/ doc .
