How do I know if I just have a head cold with a cough and not walking pneumonia? I don't have a fever. I have a slight sore throat.

Walking pneumonia. The term "walking" pneumonia applies to a chest infection that is serious but does not make you feel bad enough to stay in bed.

I assume your symptoms reflect a common cold/sore throat for the first week. After that, get it checked. No harm in waiting unless fever. Read more...
Chest x-ray... The only way to diagnose so-called "walking pneumonia" is with a chest x-ray. Symptoms are usually milder and so patients can walk around with it unaware that's what they have. It is usually due to a viral etiology so antibiotics are often not needed or even helpful. Read more...

On the other hand, if your fever is higher, you likely have a bacterial infection which will respond to antibiotics. See your doctor for specific diagnosis and treatment. Read more...
