  • Are you running a fever? I know when I had bronchitis my heart would race, skip beats, or jump all over the place. I went to the ER and they said it was due to my fever and the infection. Anyway you could get in to see a doctor? Your symptoms seem a bit scary. Did they do an xray to check for phnemonia?
