Re: how long does pleurisy last

it depends on what caused your pleurisy. if it's viral, I believe it's much shorter than if caused by an autoimmune disease. General answers that I've seen say it's an average of 2 or 3 weeks, but can last up to a few months. I'm still having pleurisy pain and I've had it for 7 weeks now. I'm told mine is viral because all tests have come back negative.

Re: how long does pleurisy last

mine has always lasted for about a week after I start on an antibiotic. The pain gradually vanishes. Are you on an antibiotic yet? If I get plurisy I always know that I have come down with pneumonia.
