I've Had Lll Pnumonia What Is That
Not necessarily: However, there are medical conditions that can increase your chance of developing pneumonia, so recurrent pneumonia should be evaluated. If the pneumonia always occurs in the same part of the lung, it may be due to an anatomical lesion, which requires further investigation. ...Read more
I've heard that once you get pneumonia you continue to get it constantly my brother had it last year and now this year is there something we can do?
Myth: Your statement is false. You can take pnemonia vaccine to prevent further infections. There are two types of pnemonia vaccines available in the market. Ask your doctor about them. Second, get annual flu vaccine. ...Read more
I had a very bad case of septic pneumonia 6 mos ago. It was the first time I've ever had it. Will I be more likely to get pneumonia again?
I've heard that there is something called a "subtle pneumonia".Could you please explain what this is and the way it works? Does it have a medical name?
A while: I presume you are feeling better, the fever should be improved, though cough is milder. If that is the case then you are getting better. Many people have residual cough and fatigue for several weeks after. In my experience most people are not back to normal for about 6 weeks. But it is pretty variable. If you are not any better, go back to see your doctor. ...Read more
I've been diagnosed with pneumonia it's better to use a hot water vaporizer or cold water vaporizer to keep my moist?
Any if no burn risk: The humidity is effective either way. If there are children who may get burned by hot water use cold water! Often the hot water vaporizers are better designed for adding menthol (ie Vick's Vaporub). Some find this to be soothing and some find it helps their breathing. ...Read more

I was recently diagnosed with pneumonia. I've been taking meds for 3 days now. Blood is still showing up in my phlegm. Should blood be gone by now?
Phlegm: The blood tinged mucus may persist for days. As your shortness of breath, fever, and painful respiration improve, the blood in the mucus will soon get better too. At times, there could be a nasal/rhinitis component owing to the bloody phlegm. Best wishes. Follow up if not totally better after treatment. ...Read more

What are the symptoms of walking pneumonia I've been sick for about two months. When I cough I can feel the fluid but it doesn't come up. It started off really bad. Now I just have a cough.
Walking pneumonia.: Rather than hitting you like a ton of bricks like a typical pneumonia, walking (atypical) pneumonia can present with more subtle symptoms that may linger for even weeks before you think they may be deserving of medical attention. May present with a little cough, shortness of breath, chest discomfort, fever. ...Read more
I've had walking pneumonia 3 times this year and am currently fighting it off. I've been on Levofloxacin for 10 days and don't feel better.
Evaluation: Really need full evaluation of your pulmonary system and possibly your immune system as well. If you smoke stop NOW. Also may need evaluation for reflux as possible cause for recurrent airway issues. Three times in a year is too much for anyone so you need to get to root of the problem ...Read more
Can I exercise while I have walking pneumonia? I've been on meds and an inhaler for 4 days and the only thing bothering me is a slight cough
Yes: This generally means they do not consider you at much risk for being hospitalized and should respond to outpatient treatment. Your lungs must work well enough to sustain any exercise over baseline activities. You can push through your exercise routine and back off if you get dizzy/feel faint or realize your body is telling you to slow down. ...Read more
I've forgotten how to breathe. Stress or recent pneumonia has caused me to develop hyperventilation syndrome/over breathing. How do I fix this?
I have a cough and have started moaning as I fall asleep. I've only ever done when I had pneumonia around 18 months ago. Should I be concerned?
Possibly: But cannot diagnose you over the internet. If you are feeling poorly it never hurts to get somebody to examine you. On the other hand, if you have no other symptoms (fever, chills, shortness of breath, chest pain, etc.) it is not likely that this is pneumonia (although atypical pneumonias do occur). Go and see a doctor. ...Read more

Hi, I've been taking birth control consistently for around 6 months now and never really had problems. I got really sick last week and had pneumonia?
Unrelated: The BCP uses hormones to keep you from releasing eggs. It is the same thing that happens in natural pregnancy. It does not make you more or less likely to attract germs and get "sick". Those are things that are influenced by lifestyle choices and personal hygiene. If you get adequate restorative sleep, maintain good nutrition & avoid unnecessary exposures you have the best chance to stay well ...Read more

I have been diagnosed with walking pneumonia and told I've had it for 2 weeks and have a newborn that is 12 days old and a 3 year old should I worry?
This germ spreads through water droplets from cough/sneezing. Try to cover up mouth/nose when coughing and wash hands frequently. If your children begin to show signs of respiratory infections be sure to tell their Pedi you had walking pneumonia. Most patients handle this infection well. Can cause temporary wheezing in the very young.

I have sickle cell disease and pneumonia I very common with me but lately I been unsure of when I have it. Because I've had it with no symptoms before?
Symptoms change: The condition called "acute chest syndrome" happens in patients with sickle cell disease. It makes patients short of breath, cough, have chest pain and need oxygen. It can be caused by germs and looks like pneumonia on xrays. As patients get older, their frequency of acute chest can change. The xray can show long-term damage that also looks like pneumonia but without a new episode of acute chest. ...Read more

Possibly: Typically, the pain caused by respiratory infection is worse with deep breath and cough. If yours meets those criteria, then it's likely related.
