| | Has anybody experienced Dresslers Syndrome?
I am getting desperate now. I had a minimally invasive mitral valve repair in August 2011 and was well on the road to recovery. Then, in October, I atrted to experience chest, back shoulder pains and my heart rate was up pastt 100! At first I was diagnised with pleurisy as the doctors could hear a rub through the stethascope. He said it sounded like someone walking through thick snow!! I have been treated twice with a six week course of prednisalone which obviously didn't work so now I am being tried on Colchecine. All was Ok till this week when another flare up has occurred. Have read that it should eventually run it's course and go away, but given that I've already had loads of time off work with this, it's getting a bit much!
