I went to my doctor last Thursday and he said I had pleurisy..no tests. I went home upset.

did they do an xray?

Customer reply replied 2 months ago
No, they did not. He asked what I wanted, so I asked for several blood test to check my liver and pancreas...all normal.

I would suspect you need an xray to rule out serious chest issues

I would have ordered one

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
