anybody notice their palpitations increasing if they get sick? The flu is in our house...and I woke up chilled and not feeling very well at all.....and have an increase in my palpitations....
Is this something anyone else has noticed?
YES! I just had the flu a month ago and my PVC's were much worse and my heart rate was highly elevated. it is our bodies working even harder to fight off the virus. Once the virus is under control and you start to feel better, (no fever, aches, etc) then you will notice the palps getting better as well.
