My 19 yr old son has been diagnosed with pleurisy 4 or 5 times in less than 6 months. He was prescribed with steroids each time & was given a steroid shot once & a pain medicine (which doesn t seem to help much) and the most recent time he went (which was about 2 weeks ago), he was prescribed with an antibiotic. He feels like the pain is coming back again! He has seen a family physician each time except for when he went to the ER which I m sure was a general physician also. For this to be reoccurring so often, does he need to see a Pulmonologist instead of a general/family physician?
