Hello, I'm 17 and I've always had quite a rapid pulse throughout my life. 2 years ago I went to the doctors about this problem because I was becoming increasingly concerned about it. I got an ECG done and the doctor said it looked fine but however referred me to the cardiology unit in the nearest hospital. I had some tests done and everything seemed to be okay but my pulse was very rapid.
I do believe that I suffer from anxiety and was wondering if anxiety can cause a rapid pulse even when resting? could it be something serious? I have had some palpitations recently and my resting pulse is around 90-110. The more I focus on it, the more I worry/get paranoid. I have read that having a constant rapid pulse can increase the chances of sudden cardiac death and heart attacks, I just need a rational perspective on the subject or someone else's opinion
