Yes


Any kind of infection can cause heart palpitations. The most common reasons for palpitations associated with infections include fever and dehydration. Treatment of the infection and adequate rest and fluids are helpful in preventing palpitations. Some sinus medications (those with pseudophed) can also cause or worsen palpitations, and should be avoided if palpitations are present.

Possible migraine


Migraine like headache can be caused by a bone spur in the nose. A ct scan of the sinuses is indicated and if the spur is present a septoplasty to remove it is indicated. I provide relief to almost 90% of patients with this problem. Could your palpitations be caused by the pain? Visit my website for more information at www. KevinSmithMD.com.

Foggy head


Until the sinus infection clears, you will still feel fullness in the head. Try irrigating the nose with saline 50 cc into each nostril 5 times a day. Saline is made mixing one tsp kosher salt to one quart of water. You will need at least 10 days of levaquin. Good luck and feel better.

See UR MD


R the palpitations associated with rapid hear rate or not, does it happen during exercise or not, do you feel dizzy and clammy and short of breath? The best would be to be examined especially during a similar episode by a an MD. It can be from anxiety to what is called SVT or supra ventricular tachycardia, or sinus tachycardia due to anemia o excessive thyroid function. See an MD!

What causes heart palpitations and what do you do about it? I have had a problem for many years with heart palpitations. I know that caffeine is a real culprit and I try to stay away from it as much as I can. What else can I do?

Lots of Things


If it's just a single out of place beat here or there, it's just an irritable extra beat from either the top or bottom chambers. If it's a sustained thing with a fast run, it's usu one of 3 different rhythms we collectively call SVTs. If it's all the time, it could be inappropriate sinus tach, atrial flutter or atrial fib. A cardiac electrophysiologist can help you get to the bottom of this.
