Carly Pearce Updates Fans On Her Health One Month After Revealing Diagnosis With A Condition Called Pericarditis

Carly Pearce took to social media to share a health update one month after being diagnosed with a heart condition.

On May 30, Pearce revealed she had been diagnosed with Pericarditis. The Mayo Clinic describes Pericarditis as:

…swelling and irritation of the thin, saclike tissue surrounding the heart…Pericarditis often causes sharp chest pain. The chest pain occurs when the irritated layers of the pericardium rub against each other.”

The Mayo Clinic states other symptoms include fatigue, weakness, coughing, pounding or racing heartbeat, shortness of breath while lying down, and swelling of the belly, legs, or feet.

The “Hide the Wine” singer told fans that her health may cause her to alter her shows moving forward. She said, “If my shows look a little bit different, I just know it is because I have to keep my heart rate under control right now.

Pearce currently tours with Tim McGraw and has a headlining tour on the books for her new album, hummingbird.
