I have had what seems to be a typical cold for about a week: coughing, sneezing, clogged sinuses, headache, mild fever (only one day), sore throat (only two days), eye discomfort, etc. However, I have also found myself to get winded fairly easily when climbing stairs of moving fairly quickly. I am 22 years old and getting tested for MVP next week. I am usually pretty fit and tolerant of exercise. Does a cold actually affect pulse rate? I am finding that my resting rate and active rate has been quite high for the duration of the illness. Is the body somehow weakened and the heart needs to work a bit harder during these times? Please offer your insight. Thank you.
