Hi. Has anyone got any advice as too how to cope with a really painful pleural rub?. I've got a chest infection, and am on 2 sorts of high dose anti-biotics, 25mg Pred, salbutamol nebs and have been give co-codamol to take. If I take 1 painkiller, it doesn't work, but 2 make me feel sick and spaced out. I'm sitting propped up with a pillow up against my right side of my chest, and It helps abit, but can anyone give advise as how to cope? Thanks.
