The term Viral Myocarditis is used for defining a viral infection that happens in both adults and babies leading to the swelling of the myocarditis. In such cases, there is a lot of inflammation taking place in the heart and also the muscles surrounding the same. Common symptoms here include pain in the chest, fatigue, inability to do everyday activities and heart palpitations and chest pain or pressure.
HOW IS VIRAL MYOCARDITIS DIAGNOSED?
An X-ray, MRI Electrocardiogram or even Echocardiogram is done by a cardiologist to diagnose this.
HOW IS VIRAL MYOCARDITIS TREATED?
In many cases myocarditis improves, either on its own or with treatment, leading to a complete recovery. Myocarditis treatment focuses on treating the underlying cause. In certain cases the doctor may prescribe medication to help the body fight off the infection causing myocarditis while the heart recovers. Certain rare types of viral myocarditis, such as giant cell and eosinophilic myocarditis, respond to corticosteroids or other medications to suppress the immune system response.
DID YOU KNOW?
Rest and reducing the workload on your heart is an important part of recovery.
