    Thanks for the information. I have been having relapsing pericarditis, twice in 5
    months. Changes in ECG and elevated trop counts and c-reactive. I have
    mixed connective tissue disease. Every time my trop count is checked it’s still
    elevated and is getting higher. I am being treated now with Prednisone. Anyone
    out there have any similar problems. I have sjorgens, raynauds, fibro, arthritis and
    tons of pain… joint etc… doc thinks it may turn into Lupus or Scleroderma in time.
