What does it mean if my heart beats about 90 times a minute on average?

What does it mean if my heart beats about 90 times a minute on average? Even when I m calm and not doing anything, my heart beats pretty quickly. I ll notice it when I m watching TV or laying down to go to sleep. What does it mean? Am I gonna die soon? I forgot to mention I m not fat. If anything I m underweight. I workout regularly too. And I m 17

How old are you? How much do you exercise? Are you on any drugs (legal or otherwise) that could speed up your heart rate? Do you have lots of anxiety but are not in touch with it? This all maters. Although I venture to guess you aren't going to die soon. You just might have to see a doctor and ask him about it - maybe make some lifestyle changes. 90 beats is not sooooo horrible.
