Myocarditis recovery

Hi
Aproximately two years ago I had  a myocarditis due to intense physical Seal training whilst ill with bronchitis.  I was placed on beta blockers for a few months,  as well  as having an  MRI (which later came back clear) and after another echocardiagram, I was told I had recovered.  I found this strange, as  I still felt exactly the same i.e. breathless at times, constant exhaustion/fatigue, inability to do physical training/cardio work etc. Two years down the line, I still feel ill, same symptoms although rarely get chest pains now. I desperately want to recover so I can  train again.  I went to  my GP and she  fobbed me off with a "well, the cardiologist said you are ok" and  suggested other tests.  I may not be a Doctor, but I know I have not recovered even  if  the  damage is  now invisble.  Is it possible to return to a normal life ever? Is it possible to have recovered superficially but still be suffering this far down the line?
Thanks for your time

Hi there!

If the tests including an EKG have been clear, the symptoms are unlikely to be due to myocarditis or due to cardiovascular causes and one may consider looking at other possibilities such as causes related to the respiratory tract such as infections, inflammations, GI inflammation, stress/ anxiety, hormonal/ endocrine causes, neuro-muscular causes etc. I would suggest considering a detailed evaluation by an internist and depending on the cause diagnosed/ suspected, it can be managed accordingly or specialist care may be sought.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
