Re: Heart Rate Faster When Sick?
Your heart rate will go up if you're sick especially if you have an infection, it does this to try and fight it off! I had pharyngitis (sp) when I was in my 20's and we had to call doc out as I was so bad, I whispered in her ear that my heart was racing and I was frightened, she said that was perfectly normal and that she would worry if it wasn't beating fast.
It is only doing it's job, so please try not to worry, it will go down as soon as you are better.
I shall pass this way but once,
Any good, therefore, that I can show to any human being,
Let me do it now.
Let me not defer nor neglect it,
For I shall not pass this way again.
