Myocarditis (Calling For Recovered Friends to discuss progress and symptoms)
I am a 48 yr old male who was diagnosed with viral myocarditis 15 months ago.  My EF at one point was 12% but has since been 55% to 65%.  I have always been very active, a non-smoker, non-drinker, no history of high BP or heart disease, which the doctors attributed my thus-far recovery to.  At present time I am on Coreg CR, sivastatin, 81 mg. 81 mg aspirin.  I was following a low-salt diet at the advice of my doctors but have since been instructed to increase my daily salt intake.  I have had a echocardiogram w/bubble test, stress test, several ultrasounds with results indicating that a heart cath is not necessary.  My questions are 1. Has anyone experienced skin sensitivity around the left side area? 2. Shoulder blade popping, muscle cramping and joint discomfort? 3. Does anyone know what a normal recovery time is?
I would like to communicate by email or phone with others that have had myocarditis.  My email is ***@**** if anyone would like to chat about there results and symptoms with their recovery.  I will furnish my phone number after we contact through email.  Please, only recovered contacts.
