Do I have a heart disease?

Dear HealthBoard,
I'm a 14 years old female and have been suffering from fast heart rate from last year. My father has had some heart problems and my mother has high blood pressure. Is there any possibility that i might have a heart disease? Should I consult a cardiologist?

Re: Do I have a heart disease?

There certainly is a possibility you have congenital heart defect or some other problem causing your heart rate to be fast. First, some additional information would help. Is it too fast all the time or in episodes? How fast does it run? Sudden onset of episodes? Other symptoms associated with it? Are you taking any meds or do you have any illnesses? How much caffeine do you take in in a day? Is fast rate dependant on body position or activity level? Any thyroid disease in family? To answer your question, if it is enough to bother you, I would see a cardiologist.
