Pneumonia: You have not provided enough info to allow an intelligent comment. If you have questions about the manner in which you are being treated and cannot get straight answers from the doctor you are seeing it might be very beneficial for you to get a second opinion. If you can contact an infectious diseases expert that might be the best avenue.

Mgt: A virtual appointment and review of your medical history with recommendations can be scheduled online to better assist you. In the meanwhile, continue to take your medications as prescribed and if you have shortness of breath/pain a follow up to rule out other causes should be arranged. One condition may be bronchospasm/asthma.
