What are the symptoms of pleurisy?

I had what I think was called pleurisy many years ago & just now remembered as I am having similar symptoms....hurts to take a deep breath ( on rt. side, under breast). I had bronchitis 2 weeks ago, went to my Dr., took 2 weeks of antibiotics & last weekend started coughing up yellow phlegm again! Are these related? I took 2 muscle relaxers & a mild pain pill... Got 2 1/2 hrs. sleep (oh, I cranked my bed into almost a sitting up position too) my husband took my blood pressure (120/67) I normally about that.always low and I am 68 yrs old. Should I go back to Dr. again in morning? Thank you, Evelyn Robinson

HI
Thank for asking to HCM
I really appreciate your concern, looking to the history given here I could say that the chances of chest infection is less likely whether this is pleurisy or parenchymal infection, if you really need to rule out this possibility then the best way to get done the x-ray chest this would clear the picture, hope this information helps you, have a nice day.
