In brief: Tachycardia with SLE
As you may know, sle affects multiple organs.
It can cause pleurisy as a result of pericarditis, myocarditis, endocarditis, pleural inflammation, pleural effusion, interstitial lung diease, and even pulmonary embolism. As high pulse rate could possibly mean something potentially life threatening like pulmonary embolism, i would consider going to er if you are not followed by your doctors closely.
