Which could be related to stress and anxiety and emotions

2 weeks ago,I was a little bit upset and I start feeling bad and when I took my heart rate it was 128
Customer: replied 6 days ago.
It usually happens when I'm experiencing bad emotions


Yes it could be related to anxiety, tension and when you are emotionally disturbed

However, I would still suggest to have some blood tests especially thyroid functions

Bloods required:

  1. Full blood count
  2. Liver function tests
  3. Kidney function tests
  4. Thyroid function tests
