Brief Answer:
No pleurisy can not cause gas troubles.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your question on HCM.
I can understand your situation and problem.
But, pleurisy can not cause gas pain or trouble directly.
Pleurisy is inflammation of pleura.
The most common cause for this is infection.
It causes chest pain on coughing.
So if you are taking painkiller or antibiotics for pleurisy then these drugs can cause gas trouble.
But pleurisy can not cause gas pain directly.
Hope I have solved your query.
I will be happy to help you further.
Wish you good health.
Thanks.
