, Your BPM should increase but 198 is way to high.
Suggest you visit a cardio doctor to see if you may have A-fib, that causes high BPM.
Many people don't realize it but A-fib sorta hides while young and gets worse as you age.Source(s): Have A-fib.

That's extremely high in just 3 minutes. Check with your doctor asap.
