Hi Shell

Sorry to hear you are not feeling well and hope you get better soon. In my experience when i get sick my pulse does seem to go up but I think thats because I get health anxiety. I would suggest if you are worried about this speak to your doctor and see what they advise.

Take care

Great answer Ben.

Shell

If you have a temperature you will usually notice an increase in your pulse rate, and now add the anxiety and your have a increased pulse rate.

Try not to over think you pulse rate and let yourself go back to sleep.  Your pulse will settle back down with rest if you let go or the "what if's"

If it is truly a worry for you, please do check in with your physician.

Take care and drink fluids for the cold.

Hugs
Kitt

My dd's ped told me it was normal with a fever too. Last time my 5 yr old was sick she told me her heart was beating really fast.

I believe the heart works harder when we're sick. I'm not a professional. So, your pulse will be higher. Kitt mentioned drinking fluids. Make sure you're hydrated and rest! You can always put a call in to your doctor and ask if heart rates go up with colds. Take care!
