I have pleuresy. Have had it for over a year now. I also have a cough, mostly when I'm tired or when it is chilly. Today, my chest feels as if it is on fire. I think it is related, but I'm not sure how, and I'm not sure what to do about it. I will call my doctor and see what he says, of course. But your input would be most welcome. Have you had a similar experience? Pinch

I have this but have never felt like my chest was on fire. Actually today my chest is hurting so I can feel the inflammation. I usually take advils to bring down the inflammation. I hurts so bad to inhale. Wonder if it is reflux causing the burning sensation? Or are you saying hot to touch. Never had that either but if it is hot to touch then sound like inflammation

PrincessK....Did you try some TUMS or something like that to see if it helps (if it is reflux)?

I know mine is inflammation. I was saying that Rusha may have heart burn. I have a sharp pain whenever I breathe or eat between my breast. I hurts. I just took Advil, hopefully it will feel better. I don't know why but all of a sudden I just feel like crying. Nothing is wrong, guess just a little blue.

Thank you Eva. You are so sweet. I don't want you to cry though. I really wish we all lived in the same city so we can do Lupus Pow Wows or something. You guys are so sweet.
