Relief from Pleurisy
Watch this 
View More Posts Ignore
I have Pleurisy. I get it often, I always have. But recently it seems to occur more and more often. Is there a cure for this? I have tried inhalers, antibiotics, still no relief. I know for a fact that this is Lupus related. I would love to find a cure for this. It is sooo painful I feel like my lungs are gonna burst! If anyone has had treatment for this, please let me know how it went. Thanks! Hugs, Niecy.

" Hello there :) I'm sorry it hurts so bad, I know how that can be. Well, I don't know if this will help you specifically, but it's worth a try? I lay on my back with head propped on pillow and hot wet towel, heating pad, or anything light I can find that will retain heat the longest. Water bottles too heavy and hurts. If you can take ibuprofen, I take those at the same time. It really helps releive the pain for me. "

" I think that is what is going on with me as well. I have a doctors appointment tomorrow with a pulmonologist (sp?) to see what, if anything, can be done.
I am so frustrated ALWAYS feeling bad, hurting etc... but one of the worst parts of what is going on with me is I'm exausted from not breathing well. "
