How Long Does Pleurisy Last?

Q:
How long does pleurisy last?

A:
The period pleurisy will last depends on its causes.

In general, patients with pleurodynia will get recovery after only a few days, but sometimes the chest pain will last for a few weeks.

Patients with fever or bacterial pneumonia need to take antibiotics and it will take several weeks for them to recover.

For patients suffering from connective tissue disease or lung cancer, it’s not easy to get rid of pleurisy. The chest pain may exist for quite a long time.
