A : A heart rte of 105 is faster than average, and not considered normal under most circumstances. The majority of the time, a rapid heart rate does not reflect heart disease, but the heart's response to some other condition. In the setting of flu, especially if there is fever, a heart rate of 105 or higher may be appropriate. If the heart rate does not settle down once the flu symptoms have resolved, you should consider a checkup for further evaluation.
