A viral heart condition known as viral heart encephalitis (VHE) can cause severe damage to your heart and can cause you to lose your ability to breathe, talk and even think.
VHE is more commonly known as coronavirus (CVD).
It’s a common complication of an infection with the coronaviruses coronaviral and coronavillomavirus.
VE has a severe impact on the body’s ability to repair itself, resulting in a slow and painful recovery.
It can also cause the heart to fail and lead to death.
What causes VE?
A coronavivirus (or CVD) infection can be caused by a virus, such as the coronaviovirus (CV) that causes the flu, the coronovirus type B (COVID-19) that infects deer, or the coronacovirus that causes chicken pox.
VEE is an inherited condition.
A common cause of VEE, called coronavireal syndrome (CRS), is caused by genetic mutations in a gene.
People with the same mutation have an increased chance of developing VEE.
Common genetic mutations that lead to VEE include one that causes an abnormal immune response, another that increases the risk of heart disease, and the final mutation that makes VEE more likely.
What are the signs and symptoms of VE?: Symptoms of VIE are the same as those of a CVD infection: sudden onset of severe coughing, shortness of breath, chest pain, and swelling of the hands, feet, face and mouth.
Your heart may be racing, your blood pressure may be high, and your temperature is too high.
In rare cases, your breathing may be labored.
Sometimes your body can’t keep up with your blood flow and you may feel tired.
Other common signs and conditions include: weakness, weakness and pain, nausea, dizziness, loss of appetite, difficulty concentrating, and blurred vision.
In the worst-case scenario, VIE may cause a stroke or cardiac arrest.
What treatments are available for VEE?: While there are no specific medications that can treat VEE or cure it, some doctors recommend taking vitamin supplements to help fight VIE.
Some medications are used to treat viral heart infections like pneumonia or strep throat.
Other medications include: drugs to treat certain conditions like hepatitis C, HIV, or asthma; antibiotics for the treatment of certain infections like MRSA, urinary tract infections, or bacterial vaginosis; and anti-inflammatories for pain and inflammation.
Other treatments are called “biologic” treatments that help your body repair itself by activating and repairing the body.
You may need to take medications to help prevent VIE or treat it if you have other conditions that can cause the disease.
How common is VEE?
VEE has been around for over 100 years, but it has not been identified in the US until now.
VIE is common in all races, ages and genders, including newborns, children, the elderly, and people with genetic abnormalities.
Vee is more common in adults, older adults, people with pre-existing heart disease or stroke, and those with other conditions.
The condition is also more common among black and Hispanic Americans, as well as African-Americans and Native Americans.
In fact, VEE prevalence in these groups is nearly double the US average, with more than half of white Americans living with the disease and more than a quarter of black Americans having it.
VEA is one of the most common types of viral heart virus.
What can you do to reduce your chances of developing the disease?
Prevention of VEA will help protect your body from VIE, but prevention does not cure the disease; instead, it reduces the risk.
Prevention strategies include: drinking plenty of fluids and taking plenty of rest
