anyone had pleurisy or pneumonia?

I found out this morning at that I have stupid pleurisy, aka walking pneumonia! They don't "think" it's full blown pneumonia, but have to get my blood oxygen levels back before they know for sure how much oxygen in in my blood. Anyhoo....this hurts! I thought I was having a heart attack, that's why I went to the ER in the 1st place....now my back is on fire and this sucks! I got some Vicodin, but I hate pain meds, and some Ibuprofin and antibiotics.

Has anyone had this? How long did the pain last? They said it's normal to have pain for a few days, but this seems awfully crappy to last that long. I have a job....and school....aw crap!

I'v had it twice and it is not fun. Its very painful.

I could barely breath. I think i had it for about two weeks or so.

I hope you feel better soon :)

 My husband had this a few years back.

I just remember him taking steriods and loratabs.

I think it went away in a few days.
