Pleurisy is a type of pain that indicates inflammation of the pleura, which is the membrane that surrounds the lung and chest wall and covers the ribs and muscles of the chest.  There are many causes of pleural inflammation.  The first thing to be done is for your doctor(s) to determine the cause of your pleurisy and then it can be treated and/or prevented.

Pleurisy is not caused by fibromyalgia.
