Pleurisy: That is typically more related to your lungs and can be something as benign as pleurisy or something more serious such as a blood clot to the lungs. If you feel short of breath, have rapid heart rate, or are in any other way concerned you should be evaluated right away. If you are unsure then call your doctor's office and be connected to the doctor on call.

Chest pain: It could be either or related to the chest wall. Complete history and physical is necessary.
