I have always have faster heart beat . This is since childhood as my parents told me and they even took me to a cardic doctor when i was infant . After 1 year doctor said its fine .

I am 22 now and I still feel faster heart beat and my mother tells me too that I have faster heart beat even when I sleep compared to others . The doctors here dont tell you much about the problems and would refer to medicnes directly , this might be because patients doesnt have much knowledge into the area ( different in my case ) .

2 years back I was admitted to a hospital for some surgery ( not related ) and they had a machine connected to my chest informing nurses about the heart beat . While normal heart beat was 98 , 97 , 96 etc for others mine was 120 + , 122 etc and sometimes even more . They used to ask me if everything is fine and I used to tell them I am very much fine as I felt normal . Later a nurse complained this to a heart surgeon ( who was on a visit ) and he told them thats its Tachycardia .

This went unnoticed as I never complained about things because I dont communicate well or dont complain much as I am a lonely character , when I am scared of something my heart beat goes really high and I cant concentrate on things while doing this . This is not the case with other people around me . I even start sweating if this happens , legs become weak and I feel going down even when the heart is beating too high .

Has any one experienced this ? Comments please

Apart from that my body temp. is warmer and my family members tell me that I feel warmer . But I dont have fever and everything feels ok . Is this something related to tachycardia ? because of high heart beats.

I am young and too good at my profession . I am most of the time involved into it and I am very speedy and restless a lot of times, I even talk to myself and discuss things with myself only . I used to think this can be a symptom of Hyper activity disorder but then thought it might be because of high heart beat .

May I suggest that you make an appointment with your Dr. and ask for tests re your tachycardia but be sure you insist on an explanation for why your heart-rate runs faster than normal. 
I am wondering if you are not experiencing high anxiety which may contribute to the faster heart-rate as well as your whole family appears to be overthinking and worrying about your heart-rate.  You posted "my mother tells me too that I have faster heart beat even when I sleep compared to others".  Is you Mother checking your pulse when your asleep as this seems like an obsession with your heartrate not only by you but by your Mother?    Anxiety in the form of obsessing may  bring your heart rate up   My advice is to stop checking your pulse and make that appointment with the Dr. to find out what is causing your high pulse.

My heart rate is high even when I am in a resting state ( no anxiety ) . Apart from that its not only my mother who complains but a lot of people have realized this part .

I will surely check this out with a doctor

I do agree with Stkitt that you need to be re-evaluated by a cardiologist. I also suffer from tachycardia but have a form of it called Inappropriate Sinus Tachycardia or IST attacks. My IST attacks evolved over a period of 2 years before I was diagnosed. I went to a cardiologist and was then referred to an electrophysiologist and was placed in a heart halter for 14 days and the findings were IST attacks with certain triggers. Certain foods and emotional triggers were not even half of the problem. Mostly is was my own autonomic nervous system response that was out of whack. Imagine it as having a short circuit in the vast complexity of nerves and fibers that make up your autonomic system.

Your autonomic nervous system controls everything. Your heart rate, blood pressure, digestive process, breathing ect... Before I was diagnosed everyone told me It was stress, or asked if I was feeling anxious. When I went to the ER I kept setting off the heart monitors because every time I stood up my heart rate would skyrocket to 185-195. I wouldn't be nervous or anxious at all. I would lay down and it would settle to high 80's and 90's.

Another form of ANS disease is POTS (postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome) basically when you stand up your blood pressure becomes too low and you faint. I don't faint I just get very weak and light headed. This is just my own personal experience with my medical issues. If you have access to a blood pressure cuff maybe start recording a log of your blood pressure and heart rate in certain positions such as laying down, standing up and sitting up. I did this 3 times a day for a month for my electrophysiologist. I also invested in a heart rate monitor that goes on your wrist. It notifies you when your pulse is too high and keeps a memory of recorded high heart beats.

First thing is first though..get to the cardiologist and get a work up done then go from there. I would also start the log as soon as possible. The more knowledge you have of your body will help you get to a diagnosis faster.
