I had pneumonia for a month and now pleurisy for about three weeks. Dr. gave me anti-inflammatory for nine days, tomorrows the last day. I have started taking pleurisy root which is supposed to be an anti-inflammatory and help to heal the lungs. Does anyone know how long pleurisy lasts and/or have any suggestions for me?
