Pleurisy: Your symptoms suggest pleurisy. This can be caused by either a virus or by bacteria. You need to see your doctor for appropriate evaluation which may include a chest x-ray and/or blood work. If bacterial, antibiotics are advised, In either case, anti-inflammatory drugs can provide great relief. Warm regards.
