Lifestyle and home remedies

By Mayo Clinic Staff

For most mild cases of pericarditis, rest and over-the-counter pain medications — taken under your doctor's direction — may be all that's needed. While you recuperate, avoid rigorous physical activity. Strenuous activity can trigger pericarditis symptoms. Ask your doctor how long you need to take it easy.
