Rapid heartbeat, tiredness. Should I get medical help?

I am 20 years old and my heartbeat is really fast. Sometimes when I m sitting not doing anything it will beat really hard and fast and it scares me. Also after sneezing or yawning it starts to beat really fast like I ran up stairs. I m always tired. My resting heart is between 96-98. I don t know if I should get help or not.

Hello and welcome to HCM
Your rapid heart beats may be due to PSVT (Paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia) or AF (Atrial Fibrillation), needs to be investigated. Most likely it is PSVT. It is due to problem in the conduction system of the heart. but to get to a diagnosis some more information is needed. How long does this fast heart beat occur? Does it causes Vertigo? How many times or at what frequency does it occur? Have you feel any chest pain during that time?
My opinion is to consult your cardiologist and get your EKG done and done it at the time of fast heart beats or apply holter. You can also send your EKG at Health Care Magic and ask related queries.
