I had pleurisy at the end of March very mildly after recovering from Corona. As I couldn’t physically get examined by a doctor, it was mislabelled as muscle pain due to exercise and it went away. It has came back now and it still seems mild, I still can’t get examined by a doctor but he said it’s likely to be pleurisy. As it’s came back, will ibuprofen just do the trick?

If you are treating the pain I would opt for paracetamol but if your doctor recommended ibruprofen for your symptoms do go along with what your doctor advised.
NHS mention ibruprofen : nhs.uk/conditions/pleurisy/
Hope you are feeling better soon.
