Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I appreciate the genuine concerns regarding your health. I have carefully worked through your case and I can realize your health worries.


The Probable causes:

There is nothing to worry about your heart. It is due to infection of the respiratory tract.

Treatment plan:

I suggest the following medicine. Consult your doctor, discuss with him or her and take the medicine with consent.
1. Fexofenadine 120 mg once at night.
2. Ibuprofen oral three times a day.
3. Azithromycin 400 mg once a day for five days only.
4. Dry cough syrup two tablespoons thrice a day.

Regarding follow up:

For further information consult a cardiologist online.---> https://www.icliniq.com/ask-a-doctor-online/cardiologist
