Suggest treatment for slow heart rate and grade 4 heart murmur

I am female, 37 years old. 6ft tall and weigh 210lbs. I have been diagnosed with severe pericarditis and have to undergo 6 weeks treatment of anti-inflammatory drugs, yet i am also presenting symptoms of tietze syndrome - a condition i have previously been diagnosed with. I had a mild heart attack 2 months ago. I also have a grade 4 heart murmur and a slow heart rate (60-69 bpm). I'm in pain and wanted advice on how to manage it please.

Hello,

I passed carefully through your question and would like to directly review your last cardiac ultrasound and blood lab tests for a more professional opinion.

Ibuprofen or naproxen can help against the pain.

Anyway, if the chest pain is triggered by physical activity, I recommend going to the ER for a resting ECG and cardiac enzymes in order to investigate for coronary artery disease.

You should discuss with your doctor on the above tests.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Ilir Sharka,
