Walking Pneumonia Left Untreated
Right lung pneumonia jan 2013. Treated with abx. Lung function test normal. April just climbed several flights of stairs, stabbing pain in right lung?
Atypical pneumonia is so called because the causative organisms are not the usual ones associated with most cases of pneumonia. Besides mycoplasma, chlamydia & legionella, many viruses, fungi & protozoa can cause atypical pneumonia as well. Symptoms & signs can be atypical - dry cough, minimal or no fever, absence of lobar consolidation or leucocytosis etc. ...Read more
Left sided pleural effusion diagnosed as TB. After 4 month treatment feel a pull in left lung when i sneeze yawn cough or take a deep long breath.
Pleural effusion: The effusion may not have fully cleared yet but the most likely feeling is some scar tissue has formed and attached some of the lung to the chest wall. The lung itself has no pain fibers but the lining of the chest wall does and this could cause the feeling you have. You need to follow up with your MD and get a repeat chest X-Ray. ...Read more

???: I have no idea you what you are asking. If you have COPD and pneumonia I hope on antibiotics and on and inhaler to open your airways. In addition, you should have compression and drainage treatments to help get rid of that mucus in your airways. Pulmonary physical therapy would also be helpful.

You also need adequate rest. ...Read more

Too complicated: You describe a serious illness. Far more must be known before a prognosis can be determined. Life expectancy is never known. Doctors don't have crystal balls - a probabilistic statement is the best we can ever do. ...Read more
Don't think so: The left lung only has two lobes (upper and lower) and so the descriptions amount to the same. (The right lower lung is composed of the middle lobe and the lower lobe, so there is a chance for confusion). Decreased pneumonia means, in the opinion of the radiologist, the amount of fluid & inflammation is less than seen earlier. But the "pneumonia" must have been present earlier to have "decreased". ...Read more

This can occur on the opposite side as that side now is bearing additional weight and your stance/gait has been affected. ...Read more
