would i know if my heart were failing? i got 3 EKGs, 2 echos, chest XRAY and blood work in february that came back normal but all of a sudden this thought popped into my head... is it likely healthy 15 year old could develop a failing heart in seven months???

    It is very unlikely, and if all those tests you mentioned came back normal, then I don't think there would be anything wrong with a healthy 15 year old. However, if you still feel unsure I would recommend you talk to your doctor about further testing.

    For teenagers, the most healthy they can do for their heart is eating right and getting a minimum of daily exercise. (you're probably in school and school/studying is dominantly done while sitting and being sedentary).
