In brief: Chest pain, fatigue

The usual symptoms of pericarditis include sharp chest pain, fatigue, shortness of breath, and possibly exercise intolerance.
If the process is acute, or sudden onset (often from an infectious etiology), you may also have signs of infection such as fever, headache, muscle aches/pains, etc.
