Pericarditis is swelling and irritation of the thin, saclike tissue surrounding the heart (pericardium). Pericarditis often causes sharp chest pain. The chest pain occurs when the irritated layers of the pericardium rub against each other. Pericarditis is usually mild and goes away without treatment.
I found out yesterday that .8% of people who have cardiac ablations for irregular heart rhythms develop pericarditis. Guess who developed it. If you guessed me, you would be correct. The fact that I developed something that only .8% of people develop makes me think I should buy a lottery ticket. 🙂
The pain was intense, so off to the ER I went. The nurses were wonderful. One nurse felt I should stay overnight because she saw my discomfort but the doctor’s orders were for me to go home.
I had worship music in my spirit and prayed while I was alone in the room. Yes Jesus is always with us even in the Emergency Room.
They gave me medicine to take and it started helping. I managed to sleep last night.
Hopefully there won’t be anymore surprises for a while. 🙂
Thank you for reading. God Bless.

I know people who have had Pericarditis. no one says “it’s not too bad” because of the sharp pains. Praying for you brother.
Pericarditis feels like one is having a heart attack. It was bad.
So sorry to hear this. It sounds scary and painful. But I am glad you got good nurses and some meds. I will be praying that you have a smooth path ahead. 🙏
