Our expert says:
Bella, the pleura is the sac around the lungs and when it becomes inflammed/infected it typically causes the type of pain you’re complaining of. Taking an x-ray won’t help as it doesn’t show on an x-rays. X-rays are only taken to exclude other causes of chest pain if the diagnosis is unclear. The pain should clear up within the next couple of days, but if it doesn’t or it becomes worse, the best would be to see your doctor (and probably to have an x-ray taken). Good luck.
