Write-up: My son woke up with a upper backache in the middle of the night (5/3/21) and shortly after that he said that it felt like someone was squeezing his heart. We called the pediatrician on call who recommended I take him to the ER. At the ER, they performed two EKG''s, a chest x-ray, bloodwork and an echocardiogram. We were discharged from the ER 7 1/2 hours later with the following diagnoses: acute chest pain and acute pericarditis. His treatment consists of taking 600 mg of Advil every eight hours for at least the next, laying low and not exerting himself for the next and following up with his primary care provider and seeing the pediatric cardiologist later this week.
