I am 16 years old girl. I have frequent incidents of high heart beat rate. It is progressing in 2 stages, higher rate for longer time and a brief extreme pumping. At that time, I sweat over body and feel muscular pain at both shoulders.
I got a similar experience before 6 months. This started happening when I was 14 years.
Please help me understand the medical problem.

Brief Answer:
It can be Tachyarrythmia..

Detailed Answer:
Welcome to Healthcare Magic,

As per the description of your symptoms, the medical condition can be classified as Tachyarrthymias.

It can be
1.PSVT(Paroxysmal supra ventricular tachycardia)
2.Sinus tachycardia or
3.Atrial fibrillation

So to point out the exact condition and cause for this, you need to consult a cardiologist and get evaluated with ECG, 2D-ECHO, thyroid profile and blood work.

Hope i have cleared your doubt.
If you need any further information after your consultation I will be there to help you.

Thanks for the medical advise.
Just to add a point. This has happened 3 times in the last 2 years. It persisted for few minutes only. Yesterday it lasted for hours. For your information, my father also has sinus tachycardia since he was 20 years. He is normal and no thyroid problems.
I am also healthy with no medical complaint.
Can this be hereditary and benign that may not need treatment?
Appreciate your advise

Brief Answer:
Treatment can be judged after clinical examination

Detailed Answer:
Welcome back,

As I said the condition is Paroxysmal that means it comes and goes. Whether you require treatment or not could be judged, relying upon your lab tests ,ECG and 2D-ECHO reports.

Now i dont have any clue to comment on your clinical condition with out examining you clinically. Once you get the above mentioned lab works done, i can help you.

So i suggest you to consult a cardiologist.
