Pericarditis

Apr 18, 2016 5:32 PM

Suffering with pericarditis for 6 months now . Anyone else got it ?

No I don't, but my mother had it and said it was difficult & painful to breathe deep, like pneumonia. I hope you get to feeling better soon! Hugs & prayers! 🙂💕🙏🌼

Thanks for that 😀 . Do you know how long she had it for ?

Tricieblubell, I believe it was about 6 months, but she also has CHF & COPD, and was diabetic.

It takes quite a long time for the pericarditis to heal. Hang in there!

Triciebluebell, I'm sorry to hear that you are dealing with that. It sounds terribly uncomfortable. I've had pneumonia (3 different kinds) and it was a nightmare. I don't know if this feels the same but I pray that you get better soon. {{{Hugs}}} 💕🙏🏻🌻😊
