Pleurisy is an inflammation of the pleura, lining the pleural cavity surrounding the lungs. Infection is the most common cause among other causes. The inflamed pleural layers rub against each other every time the lungs expand to breathe in air. This can cause severe sharp pain with inhalation in chest.
The main symptom of pleurisy is a sharp or stabbing pain in the chest that gets worse with deep breathing, coughing, sneezing or laughing. The pain may stay in one place, or it may spread to the shoulder or back. Sometimes it becomes a fairly constant dull ache.
Depending on its cause, pleurisy may be accompanied by other symptoms:
•Shortness of breath
•Fever and chills
•Rapid, shallow breathing
•Unexplained weight loss
•Sore throat followed by pain and swelling in the joints
•Coughing up blood
And causes may be:
Viral infection the most common one, but different conditions can also cause it;
~Bacterial infections like pneumonia and tuberculosis
~Autoimmune disorders like systemic lupus erythematous
~Inflammatory bowel disease
~A blood clot in the blood vessels that go into the lungs
~Other lung diseases like cystic fibrosis
~High blood pressure
