Recurrent Idiopathic Pericarditis – Patient Experience 1

“I was first afflicted with Pericarditis (inflammation of the pericardium the membrane that surrounds the heart) seven years ago. My cardiologist suspects that it was triggered by an unknown virus. The primary symptom was intense chest pain. Pericarditis was confirmed by CT and echocardiogram scans. Those identified a thickened pericardium together with large effusions (Fluid globules). My condition ultimately became so severe that I had to have surgery to remove most my pericardium three and a half years ago. That has been largely successful however I still suffer from pericarditis emanating from the small amount of my pericardium that remains in situe.“
