I can be but usually with pneumonia you get a high fever with it and it feels like a baby elephant is sitting on your chest like you can't take a deep breath. I'm sure the doctor will be able to tell you what you have and get you on the road to recovery. Feel better soon!

Thanks Red, I am sure its not pnemonia. I was just wondering what were the symptoms. I am the type of person who likes to find out about health stuff. I am pretty sure I am going to be a doctor. I think that because my mom has lyme and it took forever to diagnose it so I want to make sure other people like her are helped fast. Just wondering what it was and symptoms were. Thanks for your help   cool . My mom was telling me a couple of symtoms like if you have blood in your sputum but told me to look up the others she didnt know them all so I decided to ask you guys. Well thanks for the help. cool

Hey Grace...Just so you know, I am going to list some of the most common symptoms that come along with pnuemonia.

Cough, often producing mucus (sputum) from the lungs.

Mucus may be rusty or green or tinged with blood.

Fever, which may be less common in older adults.

Shaking, "teeth-chattering" chills (one time only or many times).

Fast, often shallow, breathing and the feeling of being short of breath.

Chest wall pain that is often made worse by coughing or breathing in.

Fast heartbeat.

Feeling very tired (fatigue) or feeling very weak (malaise).

Nausea and vomiting.

Diarrhea.



Just relax, and let us know how your appointment goes...by the way, when is the appointment?

Best Wishes!
