PLeuritis: Sharp pain is associated with the lungs. I suggest you drink some Slow Mag 2 twice daily for the lungs. With stopping to smoke your cilia in the airways will start working and you will start coughing phlegm. Can drink Q-tuss to help clean the airways. Also remember smoking helps with anxiety, and now you might experience your stress, this can cause chestpains.Drink Magnesium

Nicotine Patch: Is the pain localized to the area where the patch was applied? Does it seem to be superficial - impacting skin? Hypersensitivity reactions, rash, dry skin, urticaria can occur with use of nicotine patches. Sorry, I can't say much without understaind more about your pain.

Ask your doctor.: Since you did not provide the name of the drug, this question is unanswerable except by the physician who knows what drug you were given.
