I was diagnosed with Acute Pericarditis 10 weeks ago however after 8 weeks of treatment colchicine, ibuprofen, co-codamol my symptoms were getting worse.
At the moment my cardiologist doesn't know what it is but he's pretty sure its not pericarditis. As such I'm having other tests however these take time. Im not at work, not on any pain relief & frankly feel no further forward than when I was taken to A&E 10 weeks ago.
Symptoms - pain/spasms over heart, spreading to shoulder down left arm, distended neck veins (throughout the day), fatigue, worse when i lie down (leaning forward doesn't change the pain). Generally feeling unwell.
Extra symptoms the last couple of days funny taste in mouth occasionally, tummy bloating (despite loosing some weight) also having clammy hands (happened a few times last night/this morning).
I've contacted Cardiologist secretary this morning via email chasing appointments but I just wondered if anyone has every experienced similar?
