Painful Pleurisy
Oct 17, 2016
Never have I ever had Pleurisy, but I remembered my grandmother getting it. When I first felt the pain I just took Ibprofen as it was mostly in my upper left chest. Thought I may have pulled a muscle. The IBprofen helped, but after a couple of days it started hurting more and started hurting in different areas of my left side. Began to worry it was my heart, but my BP was good...oxygen level was 97 (normal for me). Decided I better go see the doctor. It is that time of year that I usually get bronchitis. She listened and saw where I told her it hurt. She gave me Prednisone and Levofloxacin. I am on day 4...If I don't do anything other than sit or lay down..walk to the bathroom...I am okay...but I had to go to the grocery to get basic stuff I was out of...did not think I was going to make it home. Was so weak...pain was worse...kind of disoriented as well. Wondering how long this lasts. Need to get back to work. Any ideas as to how to make this go away other than what I am doing?
