Is a resting heart rate between 60-100bpm normal for a 16 year old? I’m inactive and when I’m walking it’s about 100-130. Panicking so much

Yes, 60-100 is the normal heart rate range. Exertion and exercise will increase your heart rate.

Panicking will increase your heart rate too. So if you can avoid it, try!

If you are worried, go and see your GP.

Doesn't strike me as particularly concerning. If you're concerned about your cardiac health, then you're eligible to attend a free CRY screening event nationwide: https://www.c-r-y.org.uk/screening/ . You'll get a freebie ECG and will be able to discuss your concerns with a cardiologist if the test shows anything abnormal. I went to one last year and have palpitations I didn't know about and don't feel, so it's a worthwhile visit.

I was just walking for about 10 mins and my heart rate was at 144. Is this still bad?

We need more information and I can't say it's good (false reassurance) or bad (falsely worrying you).

Go and see your GP, and / or ask for a screening like @sknudson said.

Yes that's a normal resting HR. I'm 20 and mine got up to 142 recently when I went for a walk, and the highest I've seen it was 177 when I was hiking. I have a long history of family heart conditions though so I'm putting mine down to something like that or that's just being how I am.

If you're worried see you're doctor. Maybe keep a record of it and see if you notice any patterns. Also maybe try to increase your activity levels to help your fitness.

I want to start running but I fear that if my heart rate is 144 when walking briskly for not very long, my heart rate will be through the roof and it’ll be very dangerous to run. But wouldn’t my heart rate decrease with exercise? My father had an irregular heart beat but I don’t know if I can inherit that.

Irregular heart beat is common in the elderly.

If you are worried go and see your GP.

Best to see your GP. They can offer you advice about what kind of exercise would be best for you, and help calm your nerves about your heart rate too

I'm like that. My resting heart rate is around 80, but even light exercise such as waking can raise it to 130. Jogging will have it very quickly reach 165, and a sprint will have it peak at about 190.
I'm not particularly unhealthy (just not really that active) so I'm presuming this is OK for someone who does not do that much exercise

Okay! Thank you so much.
