Pericarditis is the condition, when the pericardium becomes inflamed. The pericardium is a sac-like tissue, which surrounds the heart. Pericardium is responsible for keeping the heart in place and also for helping it work. As pericardium consists of two thin layers, which create the sac-like tissue, there is a very small amount of fluid surround them. This fluid is needed to prevent friction from the two thin layers, that create the sac-like tissue. During pericarditis pericardium becomes inflamed. Its most common manifestation is the chest pain. This pain can appear if the friction between two layers of the pericardium occurs and thus results in pericardium rubbing against the heart. Nevertheless, chest pain, no matter numb or acute, is a medical emergency. As symptoms of pericarditis are similar to heart attack, especially in the intensity of a chest pain, a person must call emergency upon noticing any symptoms, as a person could be having a heart attack. Pericarditis is also dangerous and can lead to other heart problems, that's why timely diagnosis is so important.
