Fast heart rate but blood pressure ok?

Hi, since the beginning of the year I have been taking NDT 1.5 grains each day each morning. Prior to that I was on 100mcg of levo. My heart rate seems to be too high for my age and I used to be very fit playing hockey each week until 4 years ago so I don't think it's because I'm unfit? For at least the last year if not longer, so whilst I was on levo as well when I exercise and use my HR monitor I was averaging about 190 and max about 202 whilst my partner would be max 150?! as I'm sat here my watch is telling me its 102, surely that can not be right? I will be booking an appointment to see my doctor after the weekend but wondered if anyone had any similar symptoms or advice?

Thanks in advance and have a nice weekend!

Are you feeling optimally medicated on 1.5 grains? Under medication can cause a fast heart rate as well as overmedication (and 1.5 grains is not a huge dose, so I doubt it's over-medication).
