Pneumonia, bronchitis or flu shortness of breath. Coughing, wheezing, chills, fever, bodyaches, headache
Hello. : Hello. Can not distinguish between these three diagnoses based on this information. You will need a medical history, a physical examination to include auscultation of your lungs and you might need a chest xray as well. They will probably check your blood oxygen level and may also do some lab tests. Would play it safe and get evaluated at the emergency room, as there is a possibility that you could have pneumonia. Hope you feel better soon. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
How extensive?: Unless you have been exposed to a huge amount ( such as in an industrial setting ) for a long time , one should have mostly a transient respiratory or nasal response.

Choice between cold and hot is based not on any scientific ideas, but rather on the level of comfort one or the other brings. In cases of inflammation it is recommended to avoid extremes - cold and hot and stick with the middle ground - lukewarm. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
