Our AC unit died this year so it's never been on yet. We are the process of putting in a new furnace and AC unit right now. So we have had our windows open - yeah I know allergy heaven! But it wasn't just this time that I have been sick but over the winter too. Sometimes I would even get a bronchitis like bug which lasts for a day or two but I end up with a rash on my torso. Usually after the 3rd or 4th day, poof, it's gone again.
No, this wasn't pleurisy. I had pleurisy almost all thru out my life and it ended approximately 15 years ago. I am quite familiar with pleurisy pain. This was different, like someone was sitting on my chest and at the same time I was sucking in cold air. Today I am much better. Still a mild cough but I never really feel bad with these "mini" infections. It's a more of inconvenience then anything.
Sherry, glad to hear you are feeling better. I'd never heard of pleurisy before 2 weeks ago. If you don't mind me asking, what was the cause of the pleurisy you had many times? Is it just a viral thing? Was it ever bad enough to be hospitalized for? Doctors are still trying to determine if my pleurisy was directly connected to Remicade.
