I developed myocarditis in feb 2016 following a chest infection in Dec 15. I had 3 hospital admissions with Arrythmias, spent a total of a month in hospital. Diagnosed with "extensive inflammation and fibrosis through the heart" following a cardiac MRI in April and told by cardiologist that I didn't have dilated cardiomyopathy and there was hope of recovery. I am under 2 different hospitals, one where I first admitted and another where I had the MRI. Just received a copy of a letter sent to my GP from the consultant who saw me at the first hospital who hasn't seen my MRI saying I have dilated cardiomyopathy. This has not been mentioned before, I think he has based this on a recent ECG. I am very worried about this new diagnosis and frightened it means an early death.
Is there Anyone out there who can offer any reassurance? I am grateful for your response.
