Re: Rapid increase in heart rate and shortness of breath when climbing stairs

sampoo, when you are sick your body does many things to compensate, its not a good time to try and figure out what your heart is doing. Check again when your good and over your virus and then see what happens. Fever or not, you can have a higher heart rate purely from the virus. Same with respiratory symptoms, its your bodies natural coping mechanism.
