5 yr old complains of headache, feels hot, fast heart beats. Anything to worry ?

My 5 yr old granddaughter first complained of a headache and then a few minutes later she said she felt so hot she wanted to take her shirt off. A few minutes later she told me her heart was going really really fast. She laid down for a while but other than that seemed fine. Could her symptoms be a precursor to a serious problem?

Hi Mazurejd,
Thanks for your query.
It might be a possibility that your granddaughter is having fever.
In fever heart rate increses and body is warm on touch.
Please get her examined by a Paeditrician and give her syrup paracetamol. Dose of paracetamol can be calculted by the weight of the girl.
Keep the room temperature at a comfortable level.
I hope this is useful to you.
