Hi....I am a 39 year old male....picked up coxsackie virus 10 days ago....was hospitalized for 3 days.....it's now over 10 days.....I appear to have a permanent heart strain....queezy feeling in stomach and muscles still feel weak.....will this ever go away or do I prepare to live with this.....should I be seeing a cardiologist....doc says it will go away but no signs of stopping at present.......View Thread
Hi, I have scanned results of my blood tests which the hospital advised confirmed presence of the virus...cannot seem to attach to this site but if u have an email address, I will mail to you.The heart strain has now somewhat disappeared though I have not been straining myself as per doctors orders...have not done anything phsyically exhausting...I must admit the only concern that remains is the headaches which seem to come and go...and I do have trouble falling asleep since I picked up the virus...tend to stay awake through the night...on the whole, I feel a million bucks better than 10 days ago....cheersView Thread
Dear sir thank you for your response......in answer to your question....just feel a little stain in the chest...this is the permanent strain I refer to....over the last few days...I now appear to be picking up headaches....this is very unnatural for me.....should I be concerned with these headaches combined with the heart strain ....note....whilst hospitalized....no cardiac tests were done....just don't want to wake up dead one of these days........regards anandView Thread
