    Hi all, my son Kyle was diagnosed with myocarditis and pericarditis this summer after being on Pentasa for around 18 months for Ulcerative Collitus.
    Any one else had the same?
    he recovered quite well as soon as the pentasa was not being taken anymore, but 3-4 moths later his heart still causes him pain, is this becuase hes now back at work and moving arouns more etc?
    Has anyone had any experince of this?
    Many thank Alison

  • Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Deficiency & Myocarditis

    Is there anyone out there with both of these? I have had Alpha 1 since 1998 and Myocarditis twice--once in 2010 and again in 2015. My EF is still around 30 percent. I often wonder if there is some connection.

    I took sulfasalazine for 8 weeks I felt more and more ill, I was told sulfasalazine was not the cause of me feeling so ill, I would get used to the drug. I presented at the Rheumatology department for routine blood test but I felt so ill I asked to see a doctor, my specified Doctor was not in clinic. My blood pressure was found to be very high, a doctor in clinic advised I should present at the A & E department at the Northern General Hospital mbut advise me to continue with the sulfasalazine. In A & E an ECG was carried out and I was found to be suffering from Atrial Fibrillation and my blood pressure was very high. I was given medication to control the atrial fibrillation and prescribed an anticoagulant. Again sulfasalazine was not suspect to cause AF. A week later I went to see my GP she advised to stop the Sulfasalazine, I felt better day by day after that but the AF has persisted. Damage has been done to the muscle at the top of my heart which sends the signal for my heart to beat.
