Does sound like flu: Take your temperature after 4 pm (when fever shows itself). Use an ear or temple device or, if you use an oral thermometer, be sure not to eat or drink for 30 minutes beforehand. It's possible that you had a fever a week ago and that you're on the tail-end of this illness when fever has resolved. ...Read more
Is a fast heart rate normal with stomach flu? 99.8 body temp and drinking plenty of water. Pulse 90-100.
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

Had Flu for the last week with high heart rate, now that Flu is gone my heart rate is really low in the 50s, feeling light headed. Should I be worrie?
Get it checked out: It's unclear what relation that 'flu' may have had to your low heart rate now. Because you have symptoms of lightheadedness with this slow heart rate (bradycardia), it should be evaluated ASAP. Have someone drive you to an ER, urgent care center or call 911 if no one can. The danger would be passing out and falling/getting hurt if you don't do this promptly. I wouldn't take a chance... ...Read more

Why can't a patient receive a FLU shot if they have an elevated heart rate due to an anxiety disorder? (PTSD)
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

99.3 temp, sore and red throat behind uvula, nasel congestion, slight headache, heart rate of 108bpm. No tonsels, cold or flu? Should I reduce fever?
Yes: Heart rate (pulse) becomes more rapid with fever. It can be the cause of the fever itself i.e. Infection. In addition your body in an attempt to reduce the fever will vasodilate or open up blood vessels so the heat can travel closer to the skin and cool the body. When this occurs the heart rate increases to maintain the correct blood pressure. ...Read more
Heart rate of 140 in a 4 year old with fever dangerous? Otherwise healthy child. Beat is regular just rapid. Thank you
Not unexpected: The range of the awake heart rate of a 4yo is 60-140. The addition of fever generally increases the rate by 10 beats/degree/min. The respiratory rate also increases by ~5 breaths/min/degree. A kids heart is much more tolerant of rapid rates than adult & with some illnesses we will see it in the 180+ range for a couple days. ...Read more

Sons sick with a 104 temp. 157bpm heart rate, is that normal for now? Should I be concerned. Also anything else to help with fever other then cvs drop
Things to ponder: The heart rate during fever is expected to rise by about 10 bpm/degree/F. The rate you cite is not dangerous to his heart & reflects the bodies attempt to push blood with immune factors & white cells around to fight the illness. Cold fluids can help if the fever causes a drop in appetite but monitor his voiding pattern. Anything less than going every 8 hours is an early sign of dehydration. ...Read more
I have terrible cold my heart rate usually when resting is 60-70bmp now it's resting at 110 and all I have done is spend it in bed no fever?
Doctor thinks I have pneumonia. Started antiobiotics. Fever stopped. Heart rate very high (85-100). I'm worried, is it normal?
See below: It would not be unusual for you to have a mild to moderate increase in pulse rate during early treatment for pneumonia. 85-100 is not a very high heart rate. The fact that your fever is better suggests your antibiotic treatment is effective. If you are feeling better don't worry about a pulse of 85-100. It will return to your baseline after resolution of your pneumonia and any deconditioning. ...Read more
