Hi. I started having a level 8 or 9 pain last week. My Dr. prescribed muscle relaxers for a back issue and he said the pain I'm feeling now (feels like really bad pleurisy pain) is probably related to my back issue. I have been on a lot of antibiotics because I'm T1D and get infections easily. An allergist I saw stated that I'm imagining that antibiotics help and I was probably getting better on my own. I have waited as long as a month and continue to get worse until I get antibiotics. So now, my Dr. dosen't want to give me an antibiotic. Basically, no one will help me and I am in so much pain and it is probably pleurisy related to an infection.
I don’t know if this will help but I was so sick. I had or still have pleurisy pains when I cough or sneeze But I ended up with pneumonia and a collapsed lung that is all better now! The dr. gave me antibiotics and a really good Rx and I am trying to remember the name! It was a very strong ibu
Thank you. My issue is...I saw an allergist that said that I'm imagining that antibiotics work for these infections and now my PCP won't give me one.
I don’t take the Rx anymore Dr told me it’s not good to take for other reasons
Mine always gives me a steroid shot and puts me on a steroid pack for a few days. That seems to be the only thing that helps. It takes a little while to take effect. I’ve had pleurisy/bronchitis 14 times since pandemic started because I had Covid that February of 2020 and the doctors didn’t know then what it was. They thought at first that I was having a heart attack🤦🏼♀️. They treated it like pleurisy because of my X-rays. But now realize, that wasn’t the case. I’ve had Covid again in February of 2021. My lungs are like, please I need a break.
I'm so sorry. I hope you feel better soon. I can't take steroids because I have Type 1 Diabetes.
