Pericarditis and breathlessness??
Hello all. Has anyone had breathlessness with pericarditis?? I have chest pressure and pain too and can't lay down without sitting upright. Dr said I have pericarditis upon listening to my chest and hearing symptoms. I was started on colchicine and ibuprofen a week ago but no improvement. The breathlessness is all the time, worse w exertion or talking.
I did have pacemaker exchanged for defibrillator w added lead June 7, 2022.
I'm worried this is more than pericarditis.
I really would be grateful for anyone's input.
