Is myocarditis becoming more common or is it just being better diagnosed?  I never even heard of it until I came down with it a few years ago.  Now It seems like I'm reading more and more on this disease; even hearing about it on the news especially when it involves an athlete.  I'm not worried about getting it again but is there anything in general one can do to protect themselves from inflammatory heart diseases?  Thank you for your time.




I was just diagnosed with myocarditis on Jan. 4, 1999.  How long will I have it and is there a possibility of it ever returning.
