Hi Luke. Is this all continuous or does it come and go? Besides the ECG did you have a chest x-ray and blood work?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Comes and goes, pain will last for 2-5mins, pain out of 10 when it comes on 8-9.

chest x-ray done and Echo done all came back fine, large heart though.

blood work done all clear.

two doctors stated it was Myocarditis??

i have 4-5 attacks a day, I struggle to do day to day things i.e shopping. signed off at the moment for 4weeks.

 

do you think is myocarditis or do I have something esle?

 

I take GTN spray as this takes the pain away, I just want it to stop.

Luke--sorry for the delay but I was blocked from answering until now. Was it a cardiologist that mentioned myocarditis? And is the spray the only medication you've been given for this?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

GTN spray only thing i've been given. yes cardiologist mentioned myocarditis!

OK Luke--have you had your thyroid functions checked. What about a check for anemia and your cortisol levels? Before this began to happen had you had anything resembling the flu?
