My 2yr old son has a faster heart beat, crying, sleeping alot/tired. He only eats/drinks a little bit. His temp is 102 for the past 2 days. What do I do?

Needs exam. Your son needs to have a complete history and exam by his physician. Might be viral, but hard to tell without examining him. His fast heart rate may be partially from dehydration, but having a fever makes the heart beat faster as well. Push fluids and you can give a dose of motrin, if he is 20 pounds you can give him a teaspoon for fever, pain. Read more...

Skipping beats can be due to premature contractions of upper (pacs) or lower (pvcs) heart chambers. They are also more common at slower rates and not infrequent in babies.
