Viral Infection??


Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I think I got another viral infection :( . I am soo hot and sweaty right now, I can't even sleep. I am wondering if anyone gets alot of palpitations when they have a viral infection.? I have been getting them all night and am wondering if that is "normal" for us POTS people to get them while we are sick.

I do get them alot when I feel good, but I never had them this bad.

Thanks for any ideas. Back to try and get some sleep.

HI Jacquie,

So sorry you are under the weather. YES, any type of illness / infection can greatly increase our symptoms including palpatations.

Just make sure you are drinking extra fluids and electrolytes. I hope you feel better soon.
