Thanks for the welcome! I am tearful at being able to talk to someone else who has pain and extreme fatigue. I have felt very alone in this. I have been diagnosed for three years and it has been rough. Steroids do very little to calm the reoccuring pericarditis. I've been doing some reading and learned that nsaids are more effective. I called my doc and have not received a call back yet. Has anyone had better luck with nsaids. I am on mobic which helps my joints a lot. However the inflamation around my heart is a real PAIN in returning every couple weeks or months. Now that the sun is shining more, I am really struggling. I feel like I have the flu almost daily. Sheesh! Thanks again for the welcome! I am NOT ALONE!!!
