Pleurisy due to flu, feeling of lung bursting on sneezing, pain on certain rib areas. Cause?

I was told I had pluerisy due to the flu 2 months ago and the flu is gone but that pain subsided but yesterday it came back and when I sneeze I feel like my lung on the right side will burst and it hurts if you press on certain areas of my rib age, could it be something else... Even hurts if I move a certain way or lift anything over a pound

your pleurisy pain may come on often. it does'nt mean you have infection everytime. Its simply because of pleural thickening during initial flu 2 months ago. Just take some pain killers as and when required and do deep breathing exercises atleast 2 times in a day for 10 minutes for complete 3 weeks.
