I have had some flu-like symptoms in the past week. But I have also experienced some heart palpations. Is this a virus? Do I need to take medication?
Yes you would need: to see a doctor or healthcare provider before you improve.

Many reasons: Heart rate increases with fever. It increases with pain (which usually accompanies flu). It increases with dehydration, which happens more quickly than normal if you have a fever and aren't drinking well enough. It increases with combinations of all of the above. Rarely, it happens because the virus that is making you sick effects your heart directly. ...Read more

Lower than usual BP and heart rate. BP 95/65 normally 110/73. Heart rate 58 normally 78. Low iron. Lightheaded, blurred vision, dizzy. No cold or flu.
On any meds?: First thing I'd wonder about is whether you're taking a beta-blocker for migraines or mitral-valve prolapse or some other reason. Your symptoms are consistent with that. If not, something else is slowing down your heart, which would be no big deal if you had no symptoms. You should get this checked out in a TIMELY fashion. ...Read more
Is it serious to have increased heart palps ( feel like hiccups) with the resp flu? Feel jittery. Havent taken anything. No high fever. Just cough and short of breath and head cold.
Palpitations: If you are feeling palpitations then need to investigate it through ekg, holter or event monitor to rule out maliganant arrythmias. From your symptoms it appears that you have concomitant respiratory tract infection. When you have cough ity could cause diaphragmatic/phrenic nerve irritation. It could cause hiccouphs. As you are c/o cough and shortness of breath, head congestion seek medical help. ...Read more

Cold and flu meds: The product contains dextromethorphan (cough suppressant), acetaminophen (pain reliever) + phenylephrine ( weak decongestant). These compounds are safe to take with cetirizine, an antihistamine(AH). But AH are not valuable for respiratory infections, because they dry secretions+ lead to secondary or longer bacterial infections. Use AH for allergies or itchy skin, not ear or nose infections. ...Read more
Innocent: yes! There is such a thing, although I'd have to listen to your murmur to know for sure. We doctors call it an innocent murmur, or in essence a "flow"murmur. High flow across a valve due to increased heart rate or increased cardiac output from fevers or higher adrenaline levels are responsible for this natural phenomen. ...Read more

Should not: If you are worried enough about getting a shot, however, you might have palpitations from your fear. In rare instances, if you have had an allergic reaction to a shot in the past, you could have a severe allergic reaction to another one. However, you would know about the reaction from the first shot.... ...Read more

Common reasons why patients with the flu develop palpitations include fever and dehydration. The best way to manage palpitations associated with the flu are bedrest, fluids and medications. Prevention of flu with vaccination of high risk individuals is also important. ...Read more
