Varies: Assuming a true high cardiac output syndrome, patients may feel flushed with a fast heart rate. Most are transient situations, but some illnesses and conditions may cause a sustained high output state, e.g., hyperthyroidism, anemia, arterio-venous malformations (congenital or acquired low resistance connections between arteries and veins), or disease like paget's. Requires confirmation by doctor.
