Pleurisy is a condition in which the layer covering the lungs, called the pleura, becomes inflamed. Doctors sometimes refer to this condition as pleuritis.
Most patients will complain of a sharp chest pain that feels worse with breathing.
Other symptoms can include shortness of breath and a dry cough.
The usual cause of pleuritis is the result of a viral infection (such as the flu) or a bacterial infection (such as pneumonia).
There are rare cases in which this condition can be caused by a blood clot or even lung cancer.
In Homoeopathy, treatment is individualised for each patient, here are some remedies that may be studied.
