Pleurisy for years? The kind that is temporary & you take Advil for would be gone. Pleurisy that lasted for years , well, the underlying disease, like TB, would have killed you by now! In my non- medical opinion.
I had heart palps that went away once I got my anemia under control. I think my poor heart wasn't getting enough oxygen and was trying so hard to get it to the rest of my body. My pulse & blood pressure went down, too.
Yeah, I really didn't like that doctor. He made me feel stupid every time I went to see him about something. I really like my new doctor, but I don't see him that much. I will tomorrow, though.
