My husband has bronchitis and pneumonia. I started having severe arrythmia.

Can this be a reaction to whatever microorganism he has?  The arrhythmia has been on for six days, thousands of extra beats  day and night ,it is most probably atrial,but this has to be confirmed yet. I have also developed some dry cough and chest tightness but no other symptoms of pneumonia.  I do not smoke ,my husband is a smoker.
It is quite pesky,sometimes milder sometimes just shaking.  has anybody have any similar experience?
I thought of stress but I haven't really felt overstressed that much.

Hello and hope you are doing well.

The chest tightness and cough could be due to an infection. It could also be due to Asthma. But it's unlikely that infections can cause arrhythmias. So, please consult your primary care physician who may ask for an EKG for the arrhythmias. He may even ask for blood tests and an X ray chest. Lung function tests could further help in evaluation.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
