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.

Palpitations


If you have catecholamines being secreted they could cause both at the same time. This happens during/after sex so you might notice this at those times...

Your question gets cut off after a certain number of characters so we don't have all the read. It sounds, though, like you had some extra heartbeats at the time you pressed the "record" button. This may explain what you felt at those times.

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.

I'm on day 4 of levaquin for sinus infection & feel really weird- head fog/head pressure not from sinus infection & heart palpitations. Is this common?

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.
