Diagnosed with Pleurisy and Bronchitis, should I up the pain medicine, go to er or ride it out??

25, F

Diagnosed 10/31 with Pleurisy, 11/2 with Bronchitis. Pain is still severe on right side of chest and back. BP is elevated last reading 170/96 and hr is 117.

I went to my reg doc and they only suggested going to the emergency room or to up the pain medicine. I had a blood clot last year in the same area, so it is just concerning for me. I am not sure if I should go to the ER or just ride it out.
