Exclamation 100 bpm resting heart rate?
Is this normal?

A while back ago I tested my heart rate and it was 70 bpm (normal and healthy) but now when I test I get 100 bpm every time!

I have had a lot of caffeine and sugar today (and I am running a fever).

Should I be concerned about this? I'm only 14 (and frankly I'm obsessed with my health).

No it's not normal.
But the caffeine and the sugar, and for sure the fever can do it, easily.
Why do you have a fever ?

Relax, rest yourself and drink a lot of water. Maybe you should slightly back off the tinker tea. Tongue

I'm not sure what is causing my fever. My mother's a nurse and she tells me that sometime people just run hot.

I also ate chinese buffet today so all of that sodium could be to blame.

I thought for the longest time that I had a slightly less severe form of meningitis (because I have pretty bad brain fog and lack of mental clarity) but I think it might be just because of my diet.

I have pretty high blood pressure so it could be causing a fever.

I know that I'm a hypochondriac, it's just who I am as a person.

Well if it's really warm wherever you are, just do as Ferdy says and drink cold stuff. ... water, juice, and suck on ice. Sodium doesn't cause fever, and you don't have meningitis. You'd be very ill if you had that. High blood pressure doesn't cause fever. It it hot outside there ?

Yes pretty hot and humid, I'm drinking a lot of water now (like I always do) and I splashed some on my forehead (it usually helps when I have a fever to splash cold water on myself).

I don't know, the fast heart rate could just be because I'm leaning forward in my chair and bouncing my leg up and down.

Likely the caffeine + your age + the heat.
Some people are hypersensitive to caffeine.
Take it easy, sit in front of a fan.

RE: 100 bpm resting heart rate?
My heart rate used to concern me, as it rested at 80-85 throughout my teens and into early 20s. Then it started coming down significantly. I'm 27, and right now its resting at 56 bpm.

I had a girlfriend with tachycardia. Her heart rate never fell below 95... But she was also an anxious spaz... So theres that too.
