Define "fast".  What is your heart rate?

Heart beating fast - what does it mean ?

Oh what a lovely question.  My Italian husband would probably tell you it means that you are in love!

A resting heart rate of over 100 bpm would be defined as tachycardia.  A resting heart rate of between 60 and 100 bpm can be normal, although 60-80 bpm would be ideal.  Our heart rates can go up of course with exercise or for other reasons like if we have a fright, if we are excited, anxious, consume too much caffeine, have an illness like an infection, anaemia, electrolyte imbalance, overactive thyroid.  If you feel your heart is racing sometimes this could also be due to the start of an arrhythmia or may be pacemaker or medication related.  There are lots of reasons, some potentially more serious than others.

We need to know what your heart rate is to give you a proper answer.  You could try checking your wrist or neck pulse when you feel your symptoms again and then compare with how it feels when your heart rate feels normal.  For example, is your heart beat regular (evenly spaced), no skips, runs, pauses to indicate an irregular heart beat?  Does it feel fast, slow or a normal speed.  By feeling your pulse regularly you will soon get to know what is normal for you.  I have a blood pressure monitor which will give me an accurate reading most of the time since I do have arrhythmias and they adversely affect both my heart rate and blood pressure.  

If you are worried about any unusual symptoms speak to your team who may wish to monitor you to see what is happening.

Yes, a handheld vac is safe to use

Vacuum away!  I never found a handheld with enough power to make it worthwhile for more than a tiny cleanup, but yes - any household-type of vacuum cleaner is perfectly safe to use.
