I am 14 years old, active, and weight about 100 pounds. I eat regularly and well, though I do tend to forget to drink enough water. I have severe anxiety problems. Though I don't tend to have anxiety attacks per se, I do feel anxious for most of the day, and it even gets to points in which I feel faint. I have very frequent heart palpitations (i.e. 4-5 per day), mostly when I am relaxing or going to sleep. Though I attribute this mostly to my stress and anxiety problems, the frequency and occasional intensity of these palpitations is very frightening, and I'd like to learn more about them. My family has a history of heart diseases and problems. Furthermore, my age is another point of confusion for me. I am only 14 years old, after all, and heart problems are not things that match young children, or so I assume. Again, I'm sure these palpitations are benign and are caused by stress and anxiety, but I would like to learn more about them, or gain any advice I can to stop them. I have never seen a doctor about my anxiety problems or heart problems, and I have not been diagnosed with any major health or heart problems that I am aware of. I would greatly appreciate some advice or some knowledge on these palpitations, as they are starting to agitate and frighten me.
