In brief: Myocarditis

When severe myocarditis leads to hear failure.
Symptoms may consist of shortness of breath at rest, with activities or the inability to lay flat (depending on the severity). You may also feel that your heart beats are fast or irregular. Often the symptoms resolve with treatment, but patients can develop long-term heart failure that may require heart transplant.
