Pneumonia: Usually, but not always, the symptoms would have begun turning around by now. Certainly, if they are not improving with in the next day or two, you should get back with the Doctor Who prescribed you the antibiotics in the first place, to be rechecked. If you are getting worse, see them immediately or go to the emergency room. Good luck.
