Yes, caffiene can be factor.
My doc wasn't concerned either. She said lots of people have higher heart rates (mine was around 100 resting in bed at night). I didn't believe it though because my heart rate was always around 65 before. But docs don't listen to things like that for some reason. Mostly I think they just didn't believe me. One EKG even came back with a note saying the patient was too anxious to get a proper reading. Now you would think the doc would say, "why were you so anxious?" but no, she just repeated some people have high heart rates.
My heart rate is very normal now, 65 when resting again. Do you think my doc notice? Nope she's never said a thing about it even after comments from me about my improved heart rate. So YOU have to be concerned for YOU, assuming this is a new thing for you.
