Question Normal Heart Rate for a Teen

I'm a 17 year old girl, and I was just wondering what's the normal heart rate for someone my age, thanks!

well, im not a Doctor, so i cant tell you for sure. Are you taking a Beta-blocker? if you are, sometimes it can go around 50ish

See you doctor, have him run a EKG, i did, and im feeling better.

Your dizziness and pain along with your palpitations/flutters mean you should go see your doctor. But don't be scared. There are treatments to make you feel better. My son had two arrythmias cured through an ablation (as another person mentioned), but his problems had persisted for several years before he had this outpatient procedure. He also responded to drug therapy. Or sometimes these rhythm problems can come and go for periods of time and don't require treatment. Don't guess, tell your parents and see a doctor. And don't let doctors brush you off because you're young. If a GP doesn't respond, see a cardiologist.

It's OK for your resting heart rate to be below 60 as long as you feel good and not fatigued or dizzy.

I'm not a doctor, just a mother. Take care of yourself.
