Medical question

C1986

Newbie
I was suspected of having viral pericarditis in 2009 i had a general virus which they thought could of caused pericarditis however my tests didnt conclude this. would this cause me to fail the medical? my viras lasted a while and made me feel generally unwell. i am not on any medication it has not come back and i am very fit and healthy. any advice would be great as i am a bit worried about my medical.

thanks

Just in case anyone in the future uses the search function and finds this page, the answer is: viral pericarditis is generally a self-limiting condition and as long as there has been a normal echocardiogram (ultrasound scan of the heart) after the condition has resolved then there is no bar to entry. Similarly, costo-chondritis (inflammation of the costal cartilages (the bit of cartilage between your ribs and breastbone) is a self-limiting condition and as long as it is no longer causing probs then it is not a bar to entry.
