Hey Debbie, I would advise you take him in ASAP. Tell him that I took my 26 year old boyfriend in on Friday and now he has been admitted to the cardiac ward for further testing. It may be that he has a viral infection that is causing the fluid to build up around his heart. It can lead to death if not treated promptly. This is what they suspect with my boyfriend but they haven't confirmed it as of yet. Heart disease
and conditions are not selective based on age. Wishing you all the best!
