Racing heart - very worried

Good day all. I am very worried about my girlfriends health.

She has recently started a new job and over the past few days she hasn't had much sleep at all. She is complaining that her heart is racing, not beating irregularly just rather quick.This has started yesterday around lunchtime and has continued until this morning when I last saw her even after a good nghts rest.

She hasn't had any more caffiene(she prefers tea actually) than usual and has not taken any new medication.

What could this be?

Dear Concerned boyfriend
She may be a bit anxious and have high adrenalin levels but this can also be caused by heart muscle inflammation after flu or thyroid problems - rather take her to a gp if this persists?
