Now, it is time to define myocarditis. This is a rather rare disease. The primary cause is a viral infection. Another reason for the disease to show up is the opposite reaction of an immune system. When this defender of organism starts attacking individual’s body instead of fighting external threats, a strange reaction appears: it’s like one friend attacking his best friend. This phenomenon is often noticed during lupus attacks, so it is important to know the difference between myocarditis and similar cases.

These and other similar health issues may lead to myocarditis, a very uncommon problem with the heart. Toxic injury and negative side effects are two other possible causes. It is important to mind possible consequences of any drugs before taking them. The worst thing is that myocarditis frequently has no symptoms. The doctors can detect the problem with just one tool called electrocardiogram or numerous blood exams.
