Hi,
Thank you for your query. I understand your concern.
Exercise increases heart rate. Palpable or disturbing sensation of increased heart rate is called palpitations.
Are you having palpitations?
Is it only during exercise or during rest too?
Are you feeling weak or feverish too?
If you are having palpitations during minimal exercise or at rest, kindly consult a physician. You might need an ECG.

Transient palpitations are no reason to worry.
Take rest for a few days. Drink plenty of fluids.
If you have any further queries, you are free to consult me.

Hope this answers your query. Wishing you speedy recovery. Have a nice day.

Thanks,

Weakness causes palpitations on exercise.

Please take a break and take a well-needed rest. I hope the palpitations will disappear.

An ECG is an electrocardiograph. There is no harm in getting it done.

Wishing you a fast recovery.
Bye
