I’m 21, I have been going to the heart doctors for the last 8 years of my life and they keep saying oh you’ll grow out of this etc. I’ve had a heart cath done before. I just want to know how to fix what is going on with me. I was also in the hospital the other day with a resting heart rate of 170. I’m on bystolic 5mg but it doesn’t seem to help.

I currently see two “specialists” one for the inner heat and one for the outter heart. Just seems like they are running me in circles.

I wouldn't worry alot about the term Sinus Tachycardia anyone including me with a transplanted heart has that. It means you have a normal sinus rhythm and tachycardia means fast heart rate. Mine averages 100-110 resting and can normally go up to 140 when im like climbing the stairs. Before my transplant tho i had ventricular tachycardia which is very dangerous. My daughter went through a similar case as yours her heart rate at rest with a normal heart is around 100. She went to my dr that also treated me back when i had a bad heart and he couldn't find anything either. He feels she has a lot of anxiety and needs to find ways to relax. So a second opinion is an option but maybe its something not heart related. For a healthy young person like yourself your heart while exercising can easily go ip to 70-80% of your max and at 21 your max is 220-21 or 199. Now you would not want it to stay there very long but you got some room. The say while exercising you should shoot for 70-80% of you max. My only concern is when you say it was 170 while resting and it was a normal sinus rhythm. Very odd. One thing for me i know is when I'm a little dehydrated my heart rate avg goes up. Do you drink plenty of water? That would also help lower your heart rate. Let us know what you find out?

@jacob98898 yes i read that and chest pain is a funny thing. Being someone that has heart issues for a long time i used to confuse muscle strain and even acid reflux as chest pain. The funny thing that used to drive me crazy was which one was causing it. The heart and top of the stomach are both in the same spot. With me i finally used another symptom to help me know it was my pulse. When my heart went into an arrythmia i could tell by my pulse it got really fast to the point i could not feel it. But i think you would know a full blown arrythmya since you get very short of breath at the same time. But as others suggest get another opinion. I am not a doctor the things i mentioned is only what i felt. I hope you the best.

Hi Jacob. I don't know who "they" are but telling you that you'll eventually grow out of it, I think it is time to find another doctor. cardiologist. I'll repeat exactly what Lioness said; if you don't have a cardiologist, you need to get one. Sounds like the two "specialists" need to send your records to another cardiologist so you can get a second opinion.

Hi:
You are way to young for a resting heart rate of 170. You need an other opinion by a new Cardiologist. Contact the Cleveland Clinic. Men’s hearts and women’s hearts are totally different.

please anyone help me

Sounds like you need a good cardiologist to evaluate you. If the one you may have been going to hasn't found anything, get another opinion. You could maybe even go to the emergency room of your local hospital.

The higher pulse of 110-120 don't seem dangerous as long as you're not out of breath and possibly light-headed. But the Cardiac event if it happens again i would call an ambulance right away. And like @nene22 says get to a good cardiologist.

Hello Deepak,I'm sorry to hear that you are going through a rough period with your health. Maybe my story can help you.
When I was 46, right after drinking a cup of strong tea (with an Indian dance teacher!) and during a stressful period where my mother was dying, my heart began to race AND skip beats. Within days my heart was ALWAYS racing and skipping beats. Of course, I was very alarmed. After a few visits to Emergency, a Holter monitor test over a 24 hour period, ECGs and finally a visit with a cardiologist, I was put on beta blockers to keep my heart even and steady. The cardiologist told me that of every 10 people he sees with skipped beats and racing heart, he only medicates one…and I wasthe one. He told me that if my heart races (and 110 – 120 is not too bad), to bear down as if you are pushing in the bathroom. That will often stop the episode. But VERY IMPORTANT: he said was that if a person feels faint or weak, he or she needs medication.
I was put on a high dose of beta blockers which controlled my racing heart and arrhythmia (aFib) for 2 years. Then I discovered that by going to the gym every day and pushing my heart, I was able to slowly get off the beta blockers and my heart remained steady and strong. My cardiologist was surprised and said that the aFib would be back. But a very important thing he advised me to do was to avoid ALL stimulants; tea, coffee, chocolate, sugars, caffeinated soft drinks, spicy foods, alcohol, cigarette smokey environments, decongestants and other drugs that contain ephedrine and dental freezing. You can believe that I was highly motivated to stay well. I proved the cardiologist wrong because it is 22 years later and the condition has not returned. I do occasionally have mild episodes of racing heart (around 110 beats per minute after sugary foods) or a blip here and there which is fine.
All this is to say that you will likely find that avoiding all stimulants (above) and pushing your heart through aerobic exercise (walking just won't do it) will solve your problem. So often, lifestyle changes can solve problems instead of resorting to drugs. I wish you good luck!
