I got the flu BAD last night, and am recovering today. The only thing I've had to eat is some crackers and Lemon-Lime Gatorade. My heart is racing right now..about 96 bpm...is it normal for the heart rate to go that high when you're sick? I'm slightly overweight (5'11", 240lbs), but otherwise, I'm pretty healthy. Minus the flu, obviously. I know we aren't doctors on here, but I'd sure like some input. Getting a bit concerned.
