    Default Pleurisy and my Nebuliser

    Hi!

    Just a quick question. Does anybody here know if I would be able to use my Nebuliser while I currently have Pleurisy? Would it help me at all?

    Thanks and keep well!

    hi there again! i use my nebulizer with no problem! just breathe in slowly, and go as deep as you can, but slowly. make sure to use it before your cough or tightness gets too far. if you do that, it will ease the pleurisy more noticeably.

    hope this helps

    I hold a small pillow tightly against my chest when using the nebulizer or my MDI, also if I have a coughing spell, I do the same thing. The pressure helps the pain and makes it easier to breath deeply.
