In brief: Here's some

Cough, fever, sputum, shortness of breath, elevated heart rate, and chest pain.
Symptoms often aren't as obvious in the young or elderly.

Certainly could be pneumonia. See a doctor for treatment.

In brief: Several

The symptoms including any combination of the following: fever, weakness, poor appetite, also present may be cough, purulent sputum production, shortness of breath and chest pain.
Finally if the pneumonia is severe and oxygen levels or blood pressure low, there may be confusion, lethargy or changes in mental status. You do not have to have all of the symptoms to have pneumonia of course.
