Pericarditis involves an inflammation of the sac surrounding the heart. In severe cases, this inflammation can lead to excess fluid inside the sac, which may restrict the heart's ability to beat, a condition known as cardiac tamponade. This can potentially be life-threatening, but modern surgical interventions can typically manage it by draining the excess fluid 1.

In a specific example discussed on the Mind Pump Podcast, shared his own experience with pericarditis, which he suspects was a reaction to an mRNA vaccine. His symptoms included severe pain and discomfort when lying down, a feeling of pressure in the neck, and issues related to exertion. His condition was managed without developing into a more severe form 2.
