Hi,
This seems like pleurisy with pleural effusion it causes that severe dull heaviness and pain,so you need to see a pulmonologist as soon as you can

Hi..
Thanks for the query..

Your symptoms can be due to Pleurisy..
Consult a Pulmonologist and get evaluated by a chest x ray can be done for confirmation..

Hope this helps..

Hi
This is pleurisy
Recurrence rate suggest that you have another underlying condition, it could be,
Autoimmune disease , lymphoma or pancreatitis ,
Best way to heal faster is to have an early healthy breakfast (I know it is painful)
Good luck
