: I was wondering if anyone might know the symptoms of pericarditis? I am familiar with some but I was wondering if pain associated with this condition had to be constant. I had surgery a year and a half ago
: (ablation) and my cardiologist wants to do an ultrasound to see if this might be causing my recent symptoms. Thank you.

Only can give a first person experience but my pericarditis was a constant pain so bad morphine was not effective. Acetaminophen did work in heavy doses (2000 mg) but "night sweats" although less of a problem were a bummer. After about 3 days the pain just went away. This was in 1981 after an MI, don't know if this helps or not.
Good Luck, Gus
