Have cold virus, cough, exhaustion, experiencing heart palpitations, anxiety. Is it hormone fluxation?

Hi I am a 43 year old woman = 5 4 - 110 pounds. I semi-recovered from a cold virus about 3 weeks ago and now have a nagging cough and am exhausted. I also feel very anxious and have been experiencing heart palpitations more than usual. I have tested positive for mono in the past. About 4 months ago I passed out after lunch. I have been feeling faint on an on-going basis whether sitting or standing. I had a heart monitor about 8 years ago when I was experiencing the same kind of anxiety and heart palpitations. The test results were normal. When I asked my doctor what she thought of the fainting she suggested that it might be hormone fluxuations. I am thinking it is neurological, psychiatric or cardiac. Can anyone shed some light?

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Palpitation and fatigue may be from medicines, used to treat the fever...
It is better to repeat the monitor - it was 8 years before!

A neurological consultation is a must for fainting. MRI (and MRA, along with it) is probably necessary. It is necessary to exclude organic problem, before concluding to be psychiatric...

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
