Pneumonia symptoms range in severity, but if you are experiencing 2 or more of the following symptoms, contact your doctor for an official diagnosis immediately.
High fever up to 105 degrees, deep cough that brings up greenish, yellow, or bloody mucus (may get worse at night), chills/shaking, a consistent feeling of being out of breath, often brought on by movement, feeling exhausted, no appetite, sharp chest pains often occur when taking deep breaths and/coughing, fast, shallow breathing.
What are the four types of pneumonia?
The four main types of pneumonia are: bacterial, viral, fungal, and walking. Bacterial and viral pneumonia are the most common, walking pneumonia is less severe, and fungal pneumonia is the rarest.
Is bacterial pneumonia contagious?
Bacterial pneumonia is caused by bacteria, typically Streptococcus pneumococcus. Depending on which bacteria is causing it, bacterial pneumonia can be contagious. The bacteria are spread by coughs, sneezes, and handling contaminated objects.
Is viral pneumonia contagious?
Viral pneumonia is contagious and can spread from person to person, a virus similar to the common cold and the flu causes viral pneumonia.
How long does pneumonia last and what are the stages of pnemonia?
Here is a rough outline of what to expect for typical cases of pneumonia in otherwise healthy individuals with proper treatment:
- 1 week—fever subsides
- 4 weeks—mucus production down and chest relief
- 6 weeks—reduced coughing and improved breathing
- 3 months—symptoms should be gone, although fatigue may linger
- 6 months—full recovery
Remember, recovery varies drastically depending on who is infected and the type of pneumonia, the timeframes above do not apply to all cases and will change from person to person.
Does pneumonia go away on its own?
Uncomplicated viral pneumonia in otherwise healthy individuals may go away on its own. Bacterial pneumonia, however, will require antibiotic treatment. It’s very important to get your pneumonia diagnosed by a doctor so that you are able to get properly treated. If left untreated, pneumonia can be deadly with 50,000 people dying from pneumonia each year.

DR. Allan Marks has helped my daughter two times and we cannot recommend them enough. My daughter has ADHD and can't wait in a waiting room forever. This was the fastest and easiest way to get my daughter diagnosed and pick up a script. One time we used this service when no other doctor was open. Plush care was available! My daughter didn't have to even leave the house in 6 degree weather (would have made her MORE SICK). She had severe sinus infection and Dr. was not only clear and nice but looked up holiday pharmacy hours ahead of time to make sure I could pick up the script in time! AWESOME! 2nd time went just as smooth. Thank you!
Wow. Wow. Wow. This is so easy and quick. I had a cold virus that turned into a sinus infection. I pulled over on my way to a meeting to video chat w a doctor. He was attentive, kind, and efficient. After a few questions, he diagnosed my ailment. The call took less than 10 mins. Prescription was at the pharmacy later that day. I will be a client for a long time. Thank you.
I never review Apps, but this has been the quickest and most convenient doctor experience(s) I’ve ever had. It cost me no more than what I would have paid to visit an office. I’ve had two appointments and one was done in the comfort of my own living room and the second on my break at work. As a full time worker, full time student, and full time mom, the convenience cannot be beat. I met with Dr. Saremi who is very personable and kind. He immediately resolved my reasons for calling during both appointments. He was competent and trustworthy and valued my time. Can’t recommend this enough.
