Hi my daughter is 12 years old and in good health. She eats a balanced diet , gets good sleep and is pretty active. In the last few weeks, she s experienced three episodes of her heart beating hard for a second then it goes back to normal. She isn t dizzy or lightheaded. Is this something I should be concerned about?

Cardiologist 's  Response
only thing i think about is she may have episodes of supraventricular tachycardia
but it is not life threatening condition .
episodes of hard heart beating is also normal and many people may feel it.
just do one EKG test and if it normal no need to worry ,
but if its occurs more frequently and causing any discomfort then consult your family physician and get evaluated .
take care
