I am new to this board.... and I have been having this problem and just hoping someone could help!
I am an almost 16 yr old Female and for the last few months I have noticed(only because I am a health freak checking my pulse all the time)that sometimes I will have a resting heart rate of over 100 bpm. When it is over it's usually 100-120, Rarely 120-130 usually only if I'm really anxious. Most of the time it isn't high and my normal resting rate is usually 80-96. I have NO other symptoms eg like chest pain, palps, fatigue etc.... just this occasional fast heart rate!(Oh and after walking etc I usually check it 10 minutes after resting cause I know that walking etc can Increase your heart rate. I think I am making myself worse by worrying all the time but I can't help it(I should really ban myself from medical sites)
Anyways I was wondering if anyone knows what could be causing this occasional fast heart rate?Also it is Summer where I live now. When it's really hot could that cause the fast hear rate?
Also I am Abit overweight for my height... and I don't eat healthy most of the time and don't exercise regulary,never drink water so I was wondering if that would have anything to do with it?
I don't smoke/do drugs/or anything like that ... other then this I guess I am pretty healthy
if anyone has any suggestions please comment
P.S when it is fast I notice that sometimes it can last anywhere from a few minutes to most of the day!IF it is something serious would it be fast all the time?
thanks a bunch
