It is probable not worth it, that I post of this here. But I guess, it can not 'hurt' either, so I do.

I have this, right now. It is 'imflammation around the heart'. WebMD It is something, I get it seems much. I think I have had this five or six times in past few years. But it is not so serious I guess as 'endocarditis', which I guess is imflammation of the inner lining of heart, which I have had also two times. I have had heart issues, and had surgery last year, and I thought, that will make this stop. But I have had this I think three times since surgery even.

It is pain, and it is frightening to me. I have looked different places, for reserching it, I guess more I am likely to get it because of the heart problems already, and the rhumatic arthritis I have. But I have not seen no where anything to prevent it happening, just explaining about it and how it is treated. I do not know if there is anything to prevent it. I eat healthy, I exercise, and am in good enough health I can be. I do not know if anyone here have answers, but if ynou know anything, can you please tell to me? Thank you.

Thanks, Nobbynobs, for that informative post!! It made understanding that disease much simpler.

Vishna, I have heart problems too but it sounds like you have constant pain. Sorry for your suffering!! The article Nobbynobs shared has some treatment options. If you've tried them, are they effective treatments?

Visha,

It sounds like the surgery should have been a good treatment. Do they need to treat the arthritis to prevent this from returning?

You are in my prayers.

Thanks,

Joe
