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.
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.
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.
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.
Pneumonia is often described as a terrible cold or cough. Pneumonia symptoms are similar to that of a cold but are typically worse, causing pain and shortness of breath. If you are having trouble breathing call your doctor for an official diagnosis.
