Can the common cold cause an increase in heartrate
My resting heartrate the last few days has been anywhere from 90-110. My normal is 70-80. I'm in the middle of a nasty cold with no fever and I'm not taking any cold meds for the symptoms. Is this increase normal during a cold. I've also been a PVC/PAC sufferer the last few years but that is for another topic.

Your heart rate can increase with a cold, allergies, sinuses etc.  You are probably breathing more rapidly due to the nasal part of the cold, and that will increase your heart rate.  You may feel your PVC/PAC's more during this time as well.  Be sure you get a lot of rest.  Drinking a lot of fluids may increase your BP some, but you need fluids to help get you through the cold.  Hope you feel better soon.
