If it is stress or anxiety how do I deal with that ?

I have been having palputations since I was little, but I would only have one maybe once a month, and it was only one! now it seems like I am getting a heart rate that speeds up huge when I stand up, and slows quite significantly when I sit or lay down! I am also experiencing my childhood flutters more often then not! what could cause this? how do I get rid of it? if it is stress or anxiety how do I deal with that ? I am begging for some help, its like I can constantley feel my heart beating! also I had blood work done, and an ekg which came back all normal, I swear I am feeling this and it is ruining my life!

If the frequency has of episodes has increased you need more of a doctor, I agree Anxiety/Stress of the causes of the causes, but can be controlled easily in early stage, so don't leave it unsorted.

For human biology i'm doing an investigation of cardiovascular health in teenagers. We got 2 active and 2 inactive teenagers to do 10 step ups and we recorded their heart rate after. Both active teenagers had a much lower resting heart rate but had a much higher increase in their heart rate after the step ups than the inactive teens. Any explanations

I am a 30 year old female. I work out 5 times a week: cardio, strength and yoga. I recently went to the doctor and my heart rate was 92 bpm. I have been checking it periodically and it's always between 84 and 96. My mother told me that she has always had the same thing and her heart rate did not slow until she got older. Could it be genetic or should I be worried?

I'm a 26 year old man who is admittedly out of shape. For about the past 24 hours I have been feeling discomfort in my heart, about the time I had an argument with a spouse. We have since resolved the issue, but I still feel the discomfort in my heart. Using a stethoscope I have I recorded my heart rate at 78 beats per minute, but it seems to speed up and slow down inconsistently. I take no medication. I'd like o figure out what this is and how to fix it.
