Pleurisy occurs when the tissue that covers the lungs and chest wall becomes inflamed. It is often caused by bacterial infections, virus and fungus. Patients with pleurisy will feel a sudden sharp, or dull pain in the chest when they breath, cough, or sneeze.

Following suggestions may help relieve pleurisy pain:

  • Getting more rest.
