-I currently have very bad palpitation that I can even feel and count my pulse when leaning on the side of the table without using my finger to check the apical pulse (normal baseline of pulse is around 75). Also dyspnea concurrently occurs, probably from my nasal congestion. Though when I jog, my nose becomes decongested and I can still breath well during exercise, still a feeling of having not enough oxygen still exists. THis has lasted for recent 3 days.
-Let me describe some of my symtomps from last week:
+On Jul 3rd (1 wk ago), I have pain (pain of 7 on scale 0(no pain) -10 (worst pain) swallowing on everything, even saliva. The pain is on my right palpatopharyngeal area and my right ear at the same time of every swallowing. Hearing changed as having flu only that right ear.
+That same pain lasted til the rest of the nxt day, with The nxt day I noticed exudate on the palpatopharyngeal area in the morning.
+Nxt 2 days, pain and exudated went away.
+Jul 9th: palpitation, tachycardia, and dyspnea lasts til now Jul 11th.
On the night of Jul 10th, same mild pain on rigt ear on scale of 2 over 10.

After all of the above description, what do you think I may have? Was it because of the infection I had on palpatopharyngeal, and possibly it was a staph- or strep infection that can lead to rheumatic fever? Pls note I did not have any fever at all. Or may be you can give any other ideas of what has happened to me?
Thank you very much for your help. I'd really appreciate!
