Temp,
 
Welcome to HealingWell and the Heart & Cardiovascular Disease Forum.
 
I am glad to know you saw a cardiologist and that all your tests turned out OK.  Your Dr. has a good point about the caffeine and smoking.  I do hope you will do your best to give up the smoking and cut back on the caffeine.
 
Anxiety and stress can also cause your heart to speed up. People who are prone to anxiety may have palpitations more frequently. 

Try breathing exercises or deep relaxation (a step-by-step process of tensing and then relaxing every muscle group in your body) at the time of your heartbeat sensations. Also, consider practicing yoga on a regular basisto reduce the frequency of your palpitations.I have experienced tachycardia on occasions and once I did call my Dr. who suggested I rest and see if the rhythm returned to normal.  I fell asleep on the couch and when I woke up I was just fine.

Again a warm welcome to you and keep on posting with us here in the forum.

Kindly,

Kitt

trenton,
 
Welcome to HealingWell.  Do you want to give us a bit more info re your tachycardia ?  Did it subside on int's own or did you have to have medications.  What tests did you have and did your Dr. start you on medications ?

When my heart rate was 120, I was wildly hyperthyroid. Try to get a thyroid blood panel done to rule this out.
Ulcerative colitis diagnosed in 2001; symptoms as early as 1992. Currently in 7th year of remission with Remicade.
Inflammatory osteoarthritis; osteonecrosis from steroids
Grave's disease successfully treated with radioactive iodine and now on Levothyroxine.
Type II diabetes induced by steroids.
Meds: Remicade, Colazal, Levothyroxine, Mobic, Metformin

johnny,
 
Good Morning and welcome to HealingWell. I would suggest you make an appointment with a cardiologist to take another look at why you have developed sinus tachycardia.
 
A virus can damage the heart, but this usually shows up in an echocardiogram. An EP study performed by a cardiac electrophysiologist can determine whether you really have inappropriate sinus tachycardia.  Do be your own best advocate and keep on talking with us as we are here to support you.
 
Kindly,
