Would an elevated hematocrit/hemoglobin (51-54%) cause tachycardia and palpitations? Cause of elevation unknown, jak2 negative. Not dehydrated.

4 doctors agree

In brief: Doubtful.

Also not far from normal h/h for a young adult male.
Living at a high altitude (over 2000 meters) can also produce high hct/hgb.
