Previously very fit and healthy, I got diagnosed with idiopathic myopericarditis 7 weeks ago. Had some chest and back pain and with colchicine, and ibuprofen it resolved totally within 2-3 weeks. Colchicine has to be taken til September to help lower chance of a pericarditis relapse.
Myocarditis - My EF on an MRI was 46%. I was prescribed bisoprolol and ramipril. It’s now been 7 weeks since using them.
For those who’ve had an acute bout of myocarditis/myopericarditis, and recovered within weeks, how long did you find you struggled with fatigue (mental or physical)?
For my part, I notice that while I’ve had no pains for a month, I still get mentally fatigued when I push myself to work hard. I’ve wound up taking caffeine and nicotine gum to fight this off but that’s not ideal as they will counteract the beta blocker.
