    Unhappy out on dissability again

    So its been a week im off work again. Im going CRAZY ive been peeking here daily but have to post from my phone so excuse any typos beforehand. I posted about having chest last week and ended up in up in the ER with pleurisy they put me on prednisone wihout a taper treatment. Well of course we know better than that and waited the weekend to see my cardiologist. He gave me an echo and I was accumulatin fluid so pericarditis again. Not only that but he noticed im getting scarrin around my pericardium SIGH! ive been on bed rest all week but cant stand the pain im feeling all over my body. The pain on my face is new and undescibable. Boy i hate this decease and we definetely need to find a cure. Thanks for listening guys.

    I am so sorry, that you are going through such a rough patch.
    What did the doctor say about the scarring around the pericardium?
    Get us much rest as possible, I am sure that is the best thing for you right now.
    Get better soon.

    I may have been dealt a bad hand, but at least I'm still playing with a full deck. ( most of the time anyway).

    Thanks Debbie. We really didnt tak about it much other than he wants to review the films from last yr to see if he overlooked something or to confirm its something new. He wants to deal w the pericarditis first. This is scary. I havent even researched it yet 'cause im scared as to what the outcome may be.
