I was diagnosed two weeks ago with myopericarditis - went to A&E with (very mild) chest pains and had an abnormal ECG (T wave inversion), high troponins and neutropenia so was admitted, given an angiogram/echocardiogram but both were clear so discharged after a few days with antibiotics, NSAIDs and “rest for a few weeks”
So, those weeks have passed, meds nearly finished and I have my follow ups booked for end June/July, but in the meantime I don’t know whether I’m supposed to continue resting, or whether I can do some light exercise, running etc. I didn’t really get much time to ask doctors at the hospital.
I feel fine in myself I do get very intermittent, slight chest pains from time to time but they disappear quite quickly.
Should I follow up with GP? The hospital? Or just rest completely until I can speak to the consultant ? That’ll be quite a few months of resting!
