My 20 year-old son was hospitalized for 5 days in July with elevated liver enzymes and pain. Many tests were run and procedures performed, all of which were negative. One week after discharge from hospital he had a follow-up blood test. His liver enzymes were returning to normal but he tested postive for Parvovirus. One week ago he started having tingling in his arm and pain in his shoulder. He went to the clinic at school. An EKG was performed and had abnormal results. The stethoscope sound lead the dr to believe he had pericarditis . He was sent to an ER. Another EKG was abnormal but all other tests were negative for pericariditis. He was released and a cardiologist will see him next week. Today he feels like he did when his liver enzymes skyrocketed. Are these things related and is everything being done that should be done. This seems like his autoimmune system is compromised.
