Hello and welcome to HCM.
Thank you for your query.
is the inflammation of the lining of the pleural cavity
surrounding the lungs. This is only a symptom and not the main condition. The ibuprofen
that you consumed would have helped in reducing the swelling, to which you found relief. But, this is just the management of the presentation, and not treatment of the cause.
There is a chance that the pleurisy has returned once you discontinued the medication. You will have to visit a doctor, get diagnosed and accordingly manage the condition. Treating the cause of pleurisy would be the aim of therapy as of now.
I hope I have succeeded in providing the information you were looking for. Please feel free to write back to me for any further clarifications. I would gladly help you.
