I was feeling better since I got home from my vacation.  So went to a kids birthday party sun and I started having herrifiic chest pains, pain in my neck, jaw, shoulder and left lung,,,,,thought I was having a heart attack..Yikes, so i was rushed to the hospital..put in ICU come to find out I had..
 
What is pericarditis?

Pericarditis is an inflammation of the pericardium. Pericarditis is usually acute – it develops suddenly and may last up to several months.  If you could see and touch it, the membrane around the heart would look red and swollen, like the skin around a cut that becomes inflamed. Sometimes excess fluid develops in the space between the pericardial layers and causes a pericardial effusion (buildup of excess fluid around the heart).  It feels just like a heart attack, so now I have to becareful and rest and take some meds and hopefully it calms down.  If it get worse I have to have the fluid drained around my heart in the Pericardium...so shakey and heart racing today..so cant sit here...ttys

I know right?  I don't think I have any more shoes to drop.... That was truly the first time I thought I might not pull through, in the first few hrs of it....  I am doing better today, feel pretty darn good so for that I am thankful...
 
May you all have good digestive health today..
