Uno, yes, I get a higher pulse, too,whne I'm sick with a fever. ANother way the body speeds up the recovery process, I guess, but I'm no doctor.
I understand your fear about taking the beta blocker. I woud be fightened ,too, but nobody has been more prone to tachycardia than my mother and she is also very adverse to taking meds. Well, they got her on a bet blocker...she's 84...and she has finally, after 50 years of worrying about heart, stopped worying about it. So I guess there's something to be said or them. I understand many people on the chat are on beta blockers.
They prescribed metoprolol for my mother and she loves it.
You take care, and I'll talk soon with you soon on the chat. Hope you're feeling better.
