Well after having a severe pain in my lower Right rib for two days i went to have a chest xray because the nurse at health services thought part of my lung had collapsed, i found out I had Pleurisy... again... at least my lungs didn't collapse. this is my Second time around with Pleurisy and its pretty intense this time around. If i could describe the pain, its almost as if someone smashed me in the rib with a sledge hammer and every time I breath I wince in pain... I So has anyone else ever delt with Pleurisy??
