Concerned about Myocarditis?

Everyone is currently talking about Myocarditis. One of the symptoms of Myocarditis is arrhythmia (rapid or irregular heartbeats).

If you are concerned, consider self-monitoring for peace of mind. ReadMyECG focuses on second opinions of ECGs for arrhythmias and irregular heartbeats.

Send your Apple Watch, Kardia, Wellue, Samsung, or Fitbit ECGs to ReadMyECG. Our cardiographic technicians will check them for cardiac arrhythmias within minutes.

From Mayo Clinic:

"Myocarditis is an inflammation of the heart muscle (myocardium). The inflammation can reduce the heart's ability to pump and cause rapid or irregular heart rhythms (arrhythmias).

If you're in the early stages of myocarditis, you might have mild symptoms such as chest pain, rapid or irregular heartbeats, or shortness of breath. Some people with early-stage myocarditis don't have any symptoms.

The signs and symptoms of myocarditis vary, depending on the cause of the disease. Common myocarditis signs and symptoms include:

  • Chest pain
  • Rapid or irregular heartbeat (arrhythmias)
  • Shortness of breath, at rest or during activity
  • Fluid buildup with swelling of the legs, ankles and feet
  • Fatigue
  • Other signs and symptoms of a viral infection such as a headache, body aches, joint pain, fever, a sore throat or diarrhea

Sometimes, myocarditis symptoms may be similar to a heart attack. If you are having unexplained chest pain and shortness of breath, seek emergency medical help."

ReadMyECG technicians only provide a second opinion -- never a diagnosis. Information on ReadMyECG should never be taken as a substitute for medical care or attention from your physician(s). If you are having unexplained chest pain and shortness of breath, seek emergency medical help.
