Justin Pee Brannan A Sacrilegious Bastard Wants To Upseat Marty Golden. This is His Band, He is Best Known for Being A Pleurisy Survivor....
Justin is most famous for being a Pleurisy survivor also known as pleuritis, is a condition that results from the swelling of the linings of the lungs and chest. The pleural cavity (area between lungs and inner chest wall) is created by two lubricated surfaces called pleura, the inner pleura lining the lungs and the outer lining the chest wall. A variety of factors can cause the pleura to become inflamed and rub against one another, rather than slide smoothly, as one breathes. This is the cause of the chest pain associated with pleurisy (often called pleuritic pain).
Pleurisy used to be common complication of bacterial infections a long time ago; especially of pneumonia. Since the advent of antibiotics, however, rates have dropped substantially.
What is a virus? What is a viral infection? It is hard to estimate how many people get pleurisy worldwide because it is often a mild condition that resolves itself without any treatment; without the doctor being told.
Some famous people have had pleurisy, including Hernan Cortes (died of it), Catherine de Medici (died of it), Benjamin Franklin (died of it), Mahatma Gandhi, Elvis Presley (had recurring pleurisy), and Ringo Starr (at age 13), William Wordsworth (died of it), and Judy Garland.
Pleurisy, stemming from so many other conditions, is often difficult to diagnose or confused with other diseases. When you are being treated for any condition, it is important to get plenty of rest and maintain a healthy diet so as to avoid developing complications such as pleurisy.
