Long lasting Palps but heart beating normal speed...

Is that normal? I notice that I keep getting palpitations randomly, I notice them badly when I stand up or when I sit down but the speed of my heart seems normal. Im 17 by the way and when I get them my heart beats approx. 75 times a minute.

Re: Long lasting Palps but heart beating normal speed...

It sounds like your palpitations are the sensation of your heart beating harder, not faster. This is normal because your heart is constantly reacting to what your body is doing. For example, if you feel your heart beat when you move from a standing to a sitting position, or vice versa, it's because your heart is reacting to the change in your body's position. Usually, it increases when you stand up and decreases when you sit down. Some people (like myself) are more sensitive to heartbeat sensations.
