Myocarditis complications

  • Right-side heart failure occurs when the right ventricle can't properly pump blood to your lungs to collect oxygen. Excessive fatigue, shortness of breath and abdominal bloating are signs.
  • Pericarditis is a condition in which the sac surrounding your heart, called the pericardium, becomes swollen and inflamed. You can develop this condition after having a heart attack.
  • The symptoms of pericarditis are generally sharp and made worse by deep breathing. Sharp chest pain occurs when the inflammed pericardium rubs against the chest wall.
  • An arrhythmia occurs when electrical impulses, which direct and regulate heartbeats, don't function properly. Heart arrhythmias are common and usually harmless.
  • An abnormal heart rhythm (arrhythmia) is a change in the heart's beating pattern. There are many different types with different causes and effects. Possible symptoms are feeling faint, chest pain, and sweating.
  • Cardiomyopathy is a progressive disease of the myocardium, or heart muscle. There are many different types of cardiomyopathy, caused by a range of factors from coronary heart disease to certain drugs.
