myocarditis?
Posted By Jeffree Hickman on January 29, 1998 at 18:08:52:









     Hello! I was diagnosed with myocarditis in mid-Nov. of last year,
when my EF was 18% and I was really sick. After hospitalization, my Doc
placed me on lisinopril, lanoxin, and lasix. He is an excellent Doc and
I like him. As of 1/29/98, my EF has climbed to 29%. My Doc, however,
has never heard of COQ10 until I told him about it last month, and he has
been consitantly vague about:
(1) physical therapy,  
(2) full recovery (if any),
(3) the relationship between myocarditis and CHF, i.e., do I have
    CHF now? Am I at risk due to my low EF of contracting CHF in
    the future? and,
(4) the conditions which existed in instances where full recovery
    has been found.
     I understand that myocarditis is a uncommon ailment, but I haven't
been able to find ANYTHING definitive on it. Can someone shed light on
my questions listed above?                      Thank You Sooo Much,
                                                     Jeffree
my questions listed above?
