can you die from your heart virus?
A: Yes, but not always.

is there any symtoms of a heart virus?
A: Sometimes, and sometimes not.  Usually it is a virus that affects the heart, called a cardiotropic virus, such as Coxsakie B Virus.  Symptoms may include fatigue or chest pain, or there may be no symptoms at all.

what age do you produce your heart virus?
A: Could be any age.

is it all the ages you can get a heart virus?
A: Yes.

A: is there any cure for a heart virus?
Mostly damage control, once it reaches the heart.  Unfortunately, a virus that affects the heart typically isn't known of until damage is done.  It is possible for the heart to recover in at least half of cases.

is there a good news heart virus and a bad news heart virus?
A: Not sure what this means.  Some people recover, some don't.

do you usually get a heart vrius around ages 8-16?
A: No, it can affect a person of any age.

is it genetics?
A: Genetics may make a person more susceptible to certain autoimmune processes that can occur after a person experiences a viral process in the heart, but the virus itself it not genetic.

Per "is there a good news heart virus and a bad news heart virus?
A: Not sure what this means.  Some people recover, some don't. "

I am 55 now.   I had a dental infection from age 39 to 41, diagnosed with possible myocarditis at the time and told it was caused by a virus. Today, my cardiologist sees some heart damage.  For me, it caused a significant loss of stamina for everyday tasks, getting worse a bit each year.  I was a marathon runner at the time of the infection, which probably didn't help me.  I do absolutely no aerobic exercise now.  I'm in a uncomfortable position, because the damage doesn't seem that severe, I appear normal, yet each day I hit a "wall."  It is extremely limiting and embarrasing.  For further info, please see "Tricky Heart May Cause Chronic Fatigue" at WebMD by Daniel J.
