I had to go to the ER last weekend for severe chest pain. Ouch. It turned out to be pleurisy (inflammation of the lining of the lungs), they said it was common with lupus. I got stronger pain killers and was told to see me rheumy asap for a medication adjustment, I'll see him soon. I was just wondering if anyone has experienced this, how long it lasted, did it come back? Does it mean my lupus is getting worse? Thank you all for any info.
