Height and body weight? I'm suspecting its weight related you can reverse it.
Dr. Soroosh Armandi
Your bmi is 29. You're overweight, almost considered obese. Please don't take offense but you need to lose weight. Exercise and good diet. Your heart rate might have been high due to being anxious or you maybe on a medication that's causing elevated vitals. Either way, losing weight will help with your health.
