Could this be heart related?

Could the following symptoms be heart related?
Weaker or somewhat faint pulse
Consistently faster resting heart rate (lower to mid 80's-used to be mid 60's)
Fast heart rate hours after exhertion or exercise (high 90's - low 100's)
Difficulty performing tasks such as lawn mowing without fatigue or weakness.
Tired most of the time.
Feeling shaky in the cold and exhausted in the heat.
Periods (days in length)of mild lightheadedness not associated with a fast or irregular heartrate.

I am a male in my mid 30's and have had recent normal blood and thyroid tests.  These symptoms have been bothering me for more than two years.  Thanks for any input.

Dear Ben,

I can't say it's not heart related but it sounds more to me like you're just out of shape.  Do you do any type of regular exercise.  If not and your doctor approves it I would suggest an aerobic brisk walking plan of about 40 min 4 or more days a week.  Give this several months and I suspect you will feel much better.
