Is 98 bpm a high heart rate for a relaxed state ?

hey i was wondering if 98 bpm is a high heart rate for a relaxed period for instance lying in bed before sleep ? I an 16 year old male fairly fit and i think i may have overactive thyridism which is effecting my sleep.i know this would be unusual for a male teen but my uncle had it at a young age and i heard it can run in the family. If i have this condition what can i do about it?

Thanks for sharing your concern.
At your age normal heart rate is 60-100 while awake & 50-90 /min while asleep.
Over active thyroid causes faster heart beats. But more often the fast heart beats are due to anxiety,excitement, tea,coffee ,smoking etc.
In all probability you are normal , but still if you can not avoid that "thyroid" thought better get yourself checked by your GP & settle the issue forever.
Hope you feel relaxed now.
