Complex: Myocarditis symptoms include chest pain (often "stabbing" in character), congestive heart failure (leading to edema, breathlessness and liver congestion) Palpitations (due to arrhythmias), and may lead to abrupt death. Influenza is an illness with fever, cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, muscle or body aches, headaches, fatigue and some people may have vomiting and diarrhea (more in kids).
