... I've had similar symptoms, and altho a non-smoker have a history of asthma also. A couple of months ago after a trip to the emergency room I was diagnosed with pluerisy.

... I have fought for a couple of months now with lung problems beyond my normal asthma. About a month or so ago I was diagnosed with pluerisy, then just last week with pulmonary embolism.

Pluerisy????
May 22, 2013

Pluerisy????
May 19, 2013
... Sounds like possible pleurisy, but could also be coming from the pericardium (sac around heart). Most cases of pleurisy are benign and self limited, often following a respiratory infection like a cold. But there are serious reasons for pleurisy too, so it's best to get it checked out.
