Dear Mangs
I am sorry to hear that you had flu. If your heart rate suddenly increased to 131- 139, this indicates that there may be some problem with your heart. Please don't panic, because this is probably just a temporary thing, but do please go to your doctor for a medical checkup. Rather safe than sorry. Influenza can be quite a serious illness and it can take up to 3 weeks before patients have fully recovered. So I would also feel happier if you can get your doctor to check out if you have recovered completely. In the meanwhile, rest and take it easy and don't do any physical exercise until the dr gives the go-ahead.
Best regards
