Heart Beat Too Strong

Heart Beat Too Strong

Sometimes my daughters heart beats very strongly, she feels pressure in the chest, if I put my ear on her chest her heart beat bumps my head! She complains that her heart hurts. Tests have shown everything to be normal. Should we be worried?


HI: First not to worry. If you doctors have said that everything is OK with her heart then you shouldn't worrry.

When children or adults are thin, it is common to feel the heart beating against the chest. When person is nervous or excited, adrenaline will make the heart beat stronger or faster.

Avoid caffeine, stimulates, soda beverages. Email me a more detailed descripton of your daughters test and I would be able to say more.
