Hi there ~
I understand your concerns. Pleuritic pain, i.e. pain when you breathe deeply is a sign of pleuritis
which can happen after a lung infection
also known as pneumonia
. I believe that you will do well with over the counter medications like aleev or motrin as the condition may not be systemic and probably localized like costochondritis
, or inflammation of the junction of ribs with the rib cartilage
. Sometime muscle spasms may also cause this kind of pain. You do not need to be overly anxious about your condition. I am sorry about the payment issues, however I have answered on the public forum and I hope you are not disappointed. I wish you well in your path to recovery.
I hope this helps. Take care and have a lovely day!
