27 year old female with resting heart rate of 110 bpm

I am 145 lbs at 5'9'', I am a stay at home mom, so I don't get exercise everyday, but I am not overweight. I have noticed that my resting heart rate is 90-110 lately. I am on amoxicillin for an impacted wisdom tooth that is infected, so is it possible that has something to do with it? It is usually around 70-80 bpm, and my blood pressure is okay. I have an appt. with a cardiologist next week, but the worrying makes it even higher. My grandmother died of heartfailure, and I don't want a repeat.

Sounds like you are doing the right things, except for the worrying part.  Just be positive, your HR isn't high enough to be dangerous, and may indeed be due to the pain medications - did you read the side effects on that medication?  

Stay away form caffeine: coffee, tea, chocolate.. other stimulants.
