Brief Answer: Follows. Detailed Answer: Dear Madam, Thank you for posting your query on XXXXXXX Well looking into the problem I will like to tell you that what ever symptoms you are telling that are suggestive of that you have got pneumonia earlier and the pain that you are saying may be due to pleurisy that is due to irritation of pleura . It generally settles on its own but a normal paracetamol can be taken if the pain is uncomfortable . But still if it continues then you will need to see a pulmonolgist for this . A repeat chest X ray may be required if your treating doctor feels . Take care. Dr. Shruti
