Just joined and would like to find other people who have had myocarditis.
My story is 2 weeks ago was rushed to hospital with crushing chest pain and told it was a heart attack as my troponin level was 169. I am 48 and have had high blood pressure for a few years controlled by medication, gave up smoking 8 years ago, i am overweight and my cholesterol was 8.5 at last routine blood test. Spent a week in hospital having ecgs, echo's, angiogram to fit stent which wasn't needed as all my arteries were fine, suffered a radial haematoma as a complication of angiogram, then had an MRI scan and was told I have myocarditis probably caused by a virus and sent home with ibuprofen. Have no follow up appointments and slightly worried as I still don't feel much better.
Can anyone else relate to this?
