Our expert says:
No, I don't think the antibiotics could have caused the palpitations but the infection could have. If that is the case then the palpitations should disappear once the infection clears up.
It is also very unlikely that continuing with your daily walks has put a strain on your heart. It is sensible not to do evry strenuous exercise while you have an infection, but a 4k walk will do no harm at all.
Hope you feel better soon!
