Diagnosis

Pleural rub: A creaking sound heard on auscultation of the chest wall – indicating that the layers that surround the lung and chest wall are rubbing together.

That’s what the doctor said… so that’s some relief but can’t really pinpoint what actually caused it though. I did have some bloodwork done to see if there is some other cause that may explain why, all of a sudden, I had this inflammation.

But I just have to take some anti-inflammatory drugs and go back next week for a follow up. I don’t have any restrictions on the amount of exertion that I can do, so that’s nice.

But now I am so far behind on a lot of stuff! YIKES!
