The UK government has issued new guidance on the long-term health impact of coronavirus.
There have been numerous cases of coronavirus-related myocarditis cases, thought to be a combination of direct viral injury and cardiac damage as a result of the body’s immune response.
If you have been previously diagnosed with Myocarditis but are fully recovered and otherwise healthy, the recent understanding is that you are not at increased risk HOWEVER, we do recommend avoiding crowded places and following the NHS guidelines.
We advise staying on your current medication unless specifically told otherwise by your Dr, and to avoid social gatherings. Should you become symptomatic, please contact your local GP – do not go in – and advise them of your symptoms telling them that you are currently being treated for myocarditis.
We have created a support group, Myocarditis Support, on our Facebook page. This group is open to anyone who has been affected by myocarditis in any way. We are not a medical group, but we will be offering live Q and A sessions with a Dr so please come and join us. https://www.facebook.com/groups/1864917106971918/?source_id=605600339489966
