Why does your heart rate increase when you have a cold or the flu?

Why does your heart rate increase when you have a cold or the flu?

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

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

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
