Was diagnosed and treated for pleurisy with steroid pack and toradol injections. Cleared up mostly. Three weeks later a similar sharp pain in URQ just under rib when breathing. Pressing on it while breathing alleviates it somewhat. Not jaundiced or feverish. Normal looking urine and stool. Thought it could be pleurisy again and got another toradol injection. Dr. did not think pleurisy this time and wants schedule CT scan. I'm wondering if gall bladder disease. Don't really have shoulder/back pain although 3 weeks ago it was present and diagnosed as pleurisy. Opinions-experiences? Thank you.
