Hello everyone,

Thought I would ask here before going to the hospital

I had a case of viral pericarditis from severe bronchitis this summer. the symptoms included pain, convulsions, and general restlessness. After seeing a cardiologist, I was put on an aspirin diet and things have been great until now. I do not have any pain or the latter, but when I try to sleep I get a tingling sensation (painless) where my pericarditis was before. I get freaked out and cannot continue with my sleep.

Today while exercising, got some very light stabbing pains, barely noticeable.

I have these sensations regardless of my life style (alcohol / tobacco). Taking aspirin before sleep doesn't remove this "sensation".

Anyone encountered this before? Could this be simple panic or relatively inactive life style?

Thank you for your help.

  • I think you should talk with your Cardiologist.The pericardium is a membrane which envelops our hearts and may deform itself after an infection giving some severe complications like Constrictive pericarditis
