hope you're all doing well.
2 days ago after work i started having chest pains.
they were pretty bad but after eating and taking a bath they were less painful.
so i went to bed; and ended up sleeping on my back; cause my chest still hurt.
woke up the next day; the pain was back and it was much worse.
had mom drive me to the doctor.
3 x-rays, 1 EKG, and a few other tests later the doctor told me what was wrong.
i have pericarditis. basically there is a kind of sack that your heart sits in.
that sack has become swollen and inflamed and every time i would inhale, my lungs would touch
the sack and cause my chest pains.
i'm on meds now; and i feel much better.
