Please tell me, could a sinus infection cause heart palpitations?

Please tell me, could a sinus infection cause heart palpitations?

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. ...Read more

Why is it that i get sinus pains or headaches whenever I have heart palpitations? My tests say that everything is fine, do I have something different

Why is it that i get sinus pains or headaches whenever I have heart palpitations? My tests say that everything is fine, do I have something different

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. ...Read more

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?

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. ...Read more

Heart palpitations, sinus problems, extreme fatigue, dizziness, swollen glands. Swollen glands subsided after a week on antibiotics. What could it be?

Heart palpitations, sinus problems, extreme fatigue, dizziness, swollen glands. Swollen glands subsided after a week on antibiotics. What could it be?

See a doctor: These symptoms, taken as a whole, strongly suggest a need for a professional evaluation and establishment of a diagnosis. Strep throat can certainly do some of this, or the lymph nodes receding had nothing to do with the antibiotics. Too many variables here. See your family doctor and best wishes. ...Read more
