Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I am a 19-year-old male. For the last 25 days, I have had a severe cough and sinusitis. Sometimes my heart beat goes above 100 beats per minute. I consulted a doctor, and he took an ECG and chest X-ray. In the report, everything is normal, and the blood report was also normal. I was operated on for VSD closure and aortic valve repair at the age of 6. Why is my heart beating fast? I had taken an ayurvedic syrup. Will it affect the heartbeat?

Welcome to icliniq.com.

You should know that increased heart rate is very common during inflammation or infection. On the other hand, it can be an adverse effect of the medication. For this reason, I would not suggest taking this medicine. However, I suggest you take Acetylcysteine syrup. Consult a specialist doctor, discuss with them, and take medications with their consent. As all your test results (attachments removed to protect the patient's identity) are normal, this is temporary. If you have any other questions, I would be happy to answer them. Kind regards.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
