Difficult diagnosis: Myocarditis diagnosis relies mainly on a detailed history ; physical. Echo should detect damage, but the cause of damage may remain unclear.

I am more concerned over your weakness which may sometimes result from lowering the blood pressure too much. As for the volume of urine/day, if everything ok , i won't lose sleep over it. ...Read more
