You may want to contact your Doctors.
This could be a-fib. This condition makes the top of the heart beat real fast while the bottom of the heart
beats real slow. Its dangerous and can cause strokes.

Sorry to learn you're not feeling well. Were you at rest when your pulse escalates to 110 bpm while BP is fine? I have a-fib and flutter condition and this is a very familiar symptom. If it is afib, the atrium is actually quivering or fibrillating at a much higher rate. The 110 bpm is only the irregular rate that gets measured at the moment in time. This needs immediate doctor's attention to help you get back into sinus rythm soonest possible.

In cases of afib, the patient would have been prescribed with some blood thinners. If you are not already on blood thinners (like coumadin or aspirin) and an appointment with the doctor is not immediately available, you may want to call your doctor if it is advisable to take a adult dosage (300 mg/day) of over-the-counter aspirin to mitigate the risk of a stroke. Call the doctor before taking any unprescribed medication.
