Your bloodpressure is okay for your age. You heart racing like that is normal too. It's called tachycardia I experienced the same thing and was the medical manager for a cardiovascular surgeon. He explained that it's better that the heart is beating than if it stops. Nothing to worry about but make sure that you aren't getting anemic. Low iron can also cause your heart to race. When mine does it I cough to get it to stop and get it to beating normal. If you notice if you ever get excited about something your heart does it too, but you really don't notice it because your excited.

Hello cuihong;
welcome to HealhcareMagic
The BP of 130/80 is perfectly normal for you there is no reason to worry.The sudden increase in heart beat can be due to anxiety;fear;sudden shock;etc.At 16 yrs there is hardly any reason to worry about unless you have a family history of heart problems.
Thanks

I have been having heart palpitations at night for the past 2 weeks that wake me up out of my sleep. For the past 2 weeks I have been living on no sleep because of this and it is miserable. I have had anxiety issues in the past, but I really feel as though this is different. When sleeping I kind of feel like I "forget to breathe" and get a heart palpitation just when I'm about to doze off. I had heart palpitations 2 years ago and went to a cardiologist in which the doctor did many tests and found nothing abnormal. I have competed in athletics my entire life and am a seemingly healthy 23 year old female.

For the past few days I have had heart palpatations, sore arm, chest pain, and pains in my legs alongside numbness in my arm. Is this just an anxiety attack? I had a hemotoma in my leg and was petrified they were linked, but each time I showed the doctors they didn't seem to think this was a possibility. I just need reassurance that it is only anxiety.
