Can excessive dry coughing or nose bowing cause pleuritis? I have no idea how I got it. How can I treat this if I don't know the causes.

In brief: No

I'm not a lung specialist.
However, pleuritis is inflammation, or infection( pleurisy) of the outer covering of the lung, or space between Kung and inner chest wall. It's possible that extreme pressures could pop a lung blob, or bubble resulting in infection. Intense coughing might do that.
