The blood does not pump efficiently
There are different types of myocarditis, but they all have the same outcome and severity: they cause inflammation of the myocardium and is a cardiovascular emergency. The myocardium is the muscle of the heart responsible for pumping the blood by the circulatory system of the body. It does this through contractions. If inflamed, the heart muscle weakens, cannot pump blood efficiently, and the main complication is a heart failure.
Most common cause and symptoms.
A myocarditis is usually caused by infectious agents. The most frequent are viruses and bacteria. In this sense, different studies relate the covid vaccine to this pathology.
The most common symptoms are chest pain, shortness of breath (even at rest) and rapid or irregular heart rhythms (arrhythmias). It can also lead to fatigue, swelling in the legs, ankles and feet, dizziness or feeling faint, and flu-like symptoms such as headache, body aches, joint pain, fever or sore throat.
This disease should not be confused with the dilated cardiomyopathy. The result is the same: the heart cannot pump enough blood to the rest of the body, but in this case, the muscle becomes weak, stretched, or has other structural problem. In other words, no infectious agent is involved, but rather it is the result of different underlying conditions. The abuse of alcohol or cocaine, as well as diabetes, are one of the main causes.
