Q: Hi i had pleurisy about 6 years ago and i am now 23. I am sure this is also pleurisy i am experiencing now. I have taken ibuprofen and tried a warm bath but it seems to be getting worse. If i were to go to the er is there anything else they would do besides tell me that what im doing is all i can do? I am also on a antibiotic for a uti. Could this have anything to do with it?

Symptoms:  Chest, shoulder, back sharp pain when inhailing,
