I am just getting out of the worst 4 days I've had sickness wise. I basically couldn't get out of bed, had 101 fever off and on, severe headache, really achy body, sleeping about 11 hours a night an trying to throughout the day. Today is the first day without a fever, but my body is still feeling some of the pain.
My question: The past few days I've noticed my heart pace accelerating. Is that normal during the flu, or do I have something to be worried about there? It was hard for me to fall asleep last night because I was focused on it. I have read in other places that an accelerated heart rate is typical of the flu. Also, I don't know if it's the flu or not, but I've had just brief moments of pain around the heart area...not sure if it would be a lung or not though. I've had a cough for the duration of the flu that's gotten worse today as my fever has gone down. I'm also coughing up some dark mucus from deep down.
Well, thanks for your thoughts. I'm mainly wondering if I need to see a doctor about this.
