When i walk up stairs my heart races and pumps fast up to 115bpm. I am 16 and worried is this normal ??
Heart rate does increases with strenuous physical activity. But if you experience chest pain and breathing difficulty it needs to be checked by a doctor. Asymptomatic heart rate increase to 115bpm with exercise/climbing stair is not concerning. Regards

IN CASE OF LOW HEART RATE
 
i climb a flight of stairs and my heart starts racing out of control and i felt what i believe to be one huge heart flutter? Or could this be something else?
Hello, if you're not fit, climbing a flight of stairs may cause that. If you've never felt like that while doing the same activity then this could be a reason for concern. If yes, then cardiological assessment and some basic blood tests would be helpful. Potential causes may include arrhythmia, anemia, infection (increased fatigue, increased heart rate) etc I hope I've helped! Kind Regards!
