I recently had a full day health physical which included a chest x-ray. The doctor just called asking a number of questions - one of which was whether I had ever had pleurisy. About 6 or 8 months ago I experienced what my personal physician called a pleuritic type of pain in my chest. It stayed for about 3 days and then disappeared. Chest x-rays, ct scans and MRIs found nothing. Does anyone know why something would show up on an xray now - six months later?
