I recently had what I would say was the flu. I was knocked off my feet for two weeks and ended up having to go to a&e to be nebulised as I couldn't breathe. I was then diagnosed with pericarditis. I was told to take ibuprofen 200mg three times a day. Well this didn't do anything and I was back In A&e in a lot of pain and told to add 325 asprin to the ibuprofen. This is helping but hasn't stopped the pain. Also when the pain starts it triggers lots of ectopic heartbeats which In turn are causing severe headaches. Once I take my next dose of ibuprofen it stops. Can anyone advise if they have had any of these symptoms and what they do when their medication is starting to wear off. I don't want to overdose on painkillers.
