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
