Pleurisy is an inflammation of the pleura, lining the pleural cavity surrounding the lungs. Infection is the most common cause among other causes. The inflamed pleural layers rub against each other every time the lungs expand to breathe in air. This can cause severe sharp pain with inhalation in chest.
The main symptom of pleurisy is a sharp or stabbing pain in the chest that gets worse with deep breathing, coughing, sneezing or laughing. The pain may stay in one place, or it may spread to the shoulder or back. Sometimes it becomes a fairly constant dull ache.
Depending on its cause, pleurisy may be accompanied by other symptoms:
•Shortness of breath
•Fever and chills
•Rapid, shallow breathing
•Unexplained weight loss
•Sore throat followed by pain and swelling in the joints
•Ventricular tachycardia
•Coughing up blood

And causes may be:
Viral infection the most common one, but different conditions can also cause it;
~Bacterial infections like pneumonia and tuberculosis
~Autoimmune disorders like systemic lupus erythematous
~Rheumatoid arthritis
~Inflammatory bowel disease
~A blood clot in the blood vessels that go into the lungs
~Other lung diseases like cystic fibrosis
~High blood pressure

Hormonal Imbalance

Hormones are important for wellbeing of one’s life. Very often when women are in a bad mood, usually hormone levels fluctuate, and can affect mood, sexual desire, fertility and ovulation.  Means, the imbalance of hormones may impact negatively on how reproductive system responds. Every month, the female hormones estrogen and progesterone are produced. When estrogen and progesterone levels do not balance, this may have an effect on the health. The gonadotropin-releasing hormone, also affects the functioning of the hypothalamus that in turn affects the pituitary gland, which then affects the ovaries, fallopian tubes and uterus. The imbalance of estrogen hormones can also cause menopause and all the symptoms associated with it. These hormones are influenced by certain factors such as nutrition, diet, lifestyle, exercise, stress, emotions, age and ovulation. If imbalance, a diet that is low in fat and high in fiber should be taken.
Often the symptoms of Hormonal Imbalance changes in menstruation; Acne, Basal body temperature, Oily skin, Excessive hair growth, Fatigue, Dizziness, Allergy symptoms, Anxiety, Low sex drive, Headaches, Weight gain, Depression, Endometriosis, Water retention, Premenstrual syndrome (PMS), Urinary tract infections (UTI’s).
Common condition that can lead to female infertility are linked to hormonal imbalance include:
Eating disorders ~ While hormonal changes do not cause eating disorders, an imbalance in hormones can occur in severe eating disorders such as anorexia nervosa and bulimia. When an eating disorder occurs, the reproductive hormones that include estrogen and dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) are low while the stress hormones are high. In addition, the thyroid and growth hormones are also considerably affected.
Glandular problems ~ Primary glands such as the hypothalamus, thyroid and pituitary glands are responsible for the production of reproductive hormones. They send signals during reproductive processes that cause various levels of hormone production. When hormonal abnormalities occur in these glands, fertility problems in women may occur. A wide range of underlying conditions such as weight changes, stress, medication, birth control pills and medical disorders such as hypothyroidism and tumors may affect the primary glands.
Ovulation disorders ~ these types of disorders are caused by high levels of androgen’s (male sex hormones) or projecting. Androgen levels promote the male sex characteristics and are responsible for the development of pubic hair and sex drive (libido).
Poly cystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) ~ This condition is caused by abnormally high levels of male hormone, which in turn results in high levels of luteinizing hormones as well as low levels of follicle stimulating hormones (FSH).
Abnormal cervical mucus ~ Irregularities related to cervical mucus include mucus that is too thick to allow sperm penetration even during ovulation or insufficient cervical mucus production in the cervical glands.
Premature menopause ~ Premature menopause is also known as premature ovarian failure. It occurs when women under the age of 40 lack hormones required for ovulation and menstruation as a result of a depleted supply of eggs.
Thyroid problems ~ Thyroid problems may be caused when too much thyroid hormone (hyperthyroidism) or too little (hypothyroidism), interrupts cycles.
