My most frequent exacerbations show up as pleuritic pain, sometimes accompanied by extra lung congestion, sometimes accompanied by fever. Usually 1 or 2 days of extra tiredness. I generally rest, apply heat, take Advil, maybe extra Mucinex. But I just wonder if this is typical or more unusual to get pleurisy in this situation.
I'm not sure if this is caused by bronchiectasis or NTM, or maybe both have the potential to cause it. I finished treatment for NTM last summer, but I realize it can return.
Thanks for any feedback.
