Inflammation of pleura
I had a bad lung infection, and an inflammtion of the pleura resulted from this. The infection has cleared up a week ago, but my chest is still very sore from the inflammation. How long would this normally take to clear up? Please advise, as the pain is quite unbearable at times. Thank you.

Unfortunately this can persist for a few weeks. Try taking an anti-inflammatory like Mypaid if you are not allergic to any of the ingredients or do not have a peptic ulcer/gastritis.
