It means just what your doctor said, that your heart was beating too fast. There are a number of causes and at 16 you are very young to have this. but don't worry sweetie if he was really concerned he would have sent you for tests. If you are still worried or just for piece of mind go back to him with a parent or friend to establish what is exactly wrong with you, if you still get no joy go and see another doctor.

I was also told that the two drugs that are used for this condition are dangerous for me to use. One I am algeric to and the other could kill because I have tachycardia really bad. I don t know what to do. There is a doctor that puts pacemakers in the stomach. What are your thoughts?

Is there any way sinus tachycardia can be related to my acne? I ve had both for years (6-7 years) and doctors told me that it was all because of puberty. Which of course can be true but what are chances that those two are symptoms and if I ll have a right diagnosis, it can be cured. Acne is so painful, sometimes I can t even rest my had on a pillow if it s touching my skin; and having sinus tachycardia + arrhythmia (100-110 + bpm) isn t pleasant either. So both of them have making me hate myself for years. Which doctor should I see first and what should I ask them to get the answer that not includes oh, it s because of puberty, it s nothing
