Allergies and Increased Heart Rate

Does anyone know if allergies can cause increased heart rate?  I have severe allergies requiring 9 allergy shots weekly and I noticed that on the days when my allergies are really bad my heart rate increases.  I have had all the cardiac workup and other than showing periods of sinus tachycardia my heart is fine.  Could allergies be doing this?

Welcome to the forum!
Yes, allergies can increase heart rates. This can happen as when ever an allergen enters the body, it tries to throw this out. This results in a series of reactions which can increase the heart rate too.
Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
