Strange COVID-19 Symptoms You Might Miss Too
Increased heart rate and/or palpitations
Since COVID-19 mainly affects the lungs, this condition can also affect the oxygen levels in your blood. Aside from that, though, specialists have also noticed an unusual spike in patients’ heart rate; more precisely, many COVID-19 patients without underlying health conditions have had their heart rate increase suddenly with minimal effort.
Researchers believe this might happen as the immune system starts to attack autonomic nerves, which are responsible for regulating your heart rate and body temperature among other things. When these nerves begin to malfunction, they might cause an imbalance in major body functions such as your heartbeat.
