In brief: Cough and fever

Walking pneumonia is basically a pneumonia that is not so severe that it requires hospitalization for most people.
A common cause of walking pneumonia is mycoplasma; a bacteria that responds well to antibiotics in the Erythromycin family. Common symptoms include cough, fever, and shortness of breath. See your doctor if you have these symptoms.
