nono  i do not have i\that, that is why i know next to nothing about it, i have coronary artery disease.  mike, if you go way back on hte posts list you will see other topics from two or three weeks and even months ago that deal with your issue, you can probably find something there.  i do not know where everybody is, on vacation i guess. usually you would get at least 3 or 4 responses. this is a great site, do not give up on us.  the more people who just peek in and help others with what they know the better our forum will be. do you mind explaining to me what pericarditis is.  you are awful young to be needing all these things the doctors want to do. i know they must be taking your age in total consideration.

Hi mike, Welcome to Healing Well forum, we are happy to have you join our community here.  I dont have Pericarditis either so I am not going to have any personal input to give to you on this...I am sorry that others havent responded either.  Sometimes the heart forum here can be alittle slow.  We do have a thread that is dedicated to Pericarditis so I will post the link for you below and you are more than welcome to post in there...I am sure that the members who post to that thread will be able to answer your questions.  Again I am very sorry.... eyes

well pericarditis is inflamation and fluid between the pericardium and the heart the pericardium kind of lubricates the heart now since i have fluid it causes strain and rubbing that can mimic a heart attack
it is very painful and flairs up i am taking steroids to keep down inflamation also i take percaset for pain
i have had this a little over a year now and it is very hard to deal woth anymore
thanks
mike
