Thanks for your question on Healthcare Magic.
I can understand your concern.
Bronchitis is inflammation of airways. Most common cause for this is viral infection. So some degree of tachycardia and palpitations can be seen with bronchitis.
But feeling of missing heart beats, pushing hard etc are not seen in bronchitis.
So better to consult cardiologist and get done ecg, 2d echo and Holter monitoring (24 hours continuous recording of ecg) to rule out arrhythmia.
You may need anti arrhythmia and other cardiac supportive drugs on the basis of these reports.. Don't worry, you will be alright.
Hope I have solved your query. I will be happy to help you further. Wish you good health. Thanks.
