I spent a week in hospital following dizziness, fainting and chest pains.
I was treated for a heart attack, then pulmonary embolism and after lots of blood tests, ECGs, x-ray, VQ scan and CT I was discharged with a diagnosis of myocarditis and bilateral hilar lymphadenopathy.
I've left with an appointment for 7 weeks time with Respiratory team for an mri but I understand that's to investigate the enlarged lymph glands in my chest, and 0 information about the myocarditis. No medication aside from pain relief.
My questions are:
How long will i need off work?
Shouldn't there be some form of treatment for the myocarditis? I feel like they're just focused on the lymph nodes but I'm panicked about my heart!
Expected recovery time?
If anyone can offer any insight it would be grand.
