Heart beating hard randomly. Is there anything wrong ?

Hi, yesterday I was in gym class (I m 15) and we were doing our normal workouts, and my heart was beating really hard, not unusually fast, but it beat so hard that it started to hurt really bad, and so I had to stop working for a bit, but even then my heart didn t stop hurting the rest of the time at gym, and throughout the rest of the day, it would randomly start beating really hard, just a few beats, and hurt really bad, and it s already happened twice again today. Is there anything wrong? Should I ask my doctor?

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

It is advisable to have it investigated.

A thorough history and physical examination is the first step -

EKG /HOLTER (24 to 48 hour ambulatory monitoring) / ECHOcardiogram / TMT (Treadmill exercise ECG) / LABORATORY work-up – may all be necessary for further assessment and assistance.

The treating doctor may suggest them depending on need, based on his assessment of the situation.

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
