19 year old with very rapid heart beat with mild exertion

Nineteen year old with very rapid heart beat with mild exertion, My daughter is 19, average weight. When doing mild exercise such as a brisk walk, her heart rate goes up to the 190s, which is painful and makes exercise difficult. She had a echo and stress test. Doc said 200 beats per minute is okay for someone so young. Doesn t feel right to me. She also has occasional tachycardia events which are harmless according to the doc. Any suggestions? Should we seek a second opinion?

i would defiantly get a second opinion. i mean it doesn't sound like anything is glaringly wrong but that doesn't mean every ting is ok. i had a really simple heart problem and it still took years to diagnose because doctors kept writing me off. its defiantly possible that the same thing is happening with your daughter. good luck!
