ms/ tysabri/pericarditis.....any link?

I have MS and have been on Tysabri. Over the past two years I have had three episodes of pericarditis. Has anyone else had pericarditis and what did your neurologist have to say? I have read that recurrent pericarditis can be due to many things including auto immune diseases. There have also been documented cases of pericarditis while on Tysabri. I am happy to hear any of your thoughts!

Re: ms/ tysabri/pericarditis.....any link?

You might be interested in an article titled: RECURRENT PERICARDITIS DUE TO NATALIZUMAB TREATMENT which can be found in the publication: Neurology - Volume 72, Issue 18 (May 2009) which is published by the American Academy of Neurology. Your doctor's office might subscribe to the journal or your local university library might too.
