Question: underlying infection causing pneumonia(sp) or pluerisy?

I'm going crazy over the pain. And it scares me because when I read about pluerisy it says if goes untreated can cause permanent damage to walls lining lungs where adhesion takes place and permanent pains until the adhesions are torn again loose.....or something like that. read other posts from bt242 and all the others....................aaaaaaaaaaaaaaagggggggggggggggggggghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!! :)

interesting.....but that would have to do with the pleural(sp) wall and an air pocket that causing a partially collapsed lung?? damn, pretty soon I could apply for med school after all the thinking and googling I've done over this pain.
