    I've come down with the flu today, as an anxious person also I find being ill generally does make me worry. As a result, my heart rate goes up. I've had a higher than normal heart rate today too, but it could be that my body's working overtime to get rid of the virus. A heart rate in the 90s is no massive cause for concern anyway.

      Yeah I do, really heavy headed and dizzy. I woke up at 3:30am last night burning up. I'm just taking paracetamol to get my temperature down, drinking plenty of water and vitamin drinks. Try not to keep yourself too warm, even if you feel cold it's usually to do with your body temperature.

    Several things...dehydration makes your hear beat faster, as lower blood volume means it has to pump faster to get blood there. With the flu you dehydrate, due to fever and some medications. Drink tons of water and watch that heart rate slow down. Also, try not to cover up and get hot.
