I've been diagnosed with pleurisy in the e.R. And by my g.P. I started a Medrol (methylprednisolone) dose pack yesterday. What can I do at home to ease the sternum pain?

In brief: See details

You can try tylenol (acetaminophen) or advil.
If there is tenderness of the sternum this is not pleurisy.
