Symptoms of Endocarditis
Short Note About The Symptoms Of Endocarditis
Patients with endocarditis can develop:
aching joints and muscles,
edema (fluid collection) in the leg(s), foot (feet), and abdomen,
shortness of breath, and
occasionally, scattered small skin lesions.
In endocarditis, blood cultures can often detect the bacteria causing the endocarditis. Patients can also develop anemia, blood in urine, elevated white blood cell count, and a new heart murmur.
