Hi,

I would explain that your symptoms could be related to cardiac arrhythmia, probably related to the infection.

Coming to this point, I would recommend going to the ER for a physical exam and some tests:
- a resting ECG
- complete blood count for anemia
- thyroid hormone levels for thyroid gland dysfunction
- blood electrolytes for possible imbalances.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

I have been having shortness of breath. I have rhinitis/sinusitis and anxiety.Had an ekg and chest xrays. Blood work was all normal. 1st chest xray is showing cloudiness/inflammation.Suggesting COPD. Blood pressure normal, heart rate and pulse ox all good. Would an asthma/panic attack show inflammation/cloudiness in an xray?

My 14 year old daughter has mentioned that her heart seems to be beating hard and fast every once in awhile. She is not short of breath but I am concerned. Will make an appt with her doctor tomorrow but wonder why this may be happening? It just did it and her pulse seemed to be about 120 beats for a couple of minuets. Any ideas?
