Pneumonia fatigue

Common Questions and Answers about Pneumonia fatigue

pneumonia

Now for the past 2 weeks my chest is hurting sporadically, occasionally dry cough, fatigue. Took full Biaxin for a week, tonsils went down, earache went away but now have the chest pain, dry cough not bringing up any phlegm whatsoever. could this be a form of pneumonia and should I be worried that it was left untreated for a few weeks? I am 26 year old female, normally healthy. Thank you...
Six months after pneumonia, I am still plagued with some respiratory disorder or another: sinusitus, chronic cough, excess phlegm, etc. Exrays, c-scans and blood tests are normal. Yet, I am never quite well. Is this normal? (I admit to a heavy work schedule).
I was diagnosed with pneumonia 6 weeks ago. I was on oral antibiotics for 2 days, then admitted with an IV drip for 3 days (levifloxacin, as I'm allergic to penicillin-based drugs) then given a 5 day course of oral clarithromyacin. I rested for 2 more weeks after finishing the antibiotics but was still coughing yellow mucus and feeling tired with moderate/mild activity.
Ever since then, I have had chest pain, shortness of breath, fainting spells, weakness, back pain, a worseneing cough, low grade fever, chills, rash on my belly or chest, and nausea. The swollen lymph nodes have also returned. My doctor says I have bronchitis/walking pneumonia and put me on doxycycline on tuesday, but I am not feeling any better. I only have one day of antibiotics left.
Symptoms began Nov.
I also have a persistent cough ranging from phlegmy to dry. Last year, 2006 in January, my doctor said I had mycoplasma pneumonia and prescribed Biaxcin for a month. The flushing and sweats continued. In September 2007, after blood testing, he said I had mycoplasma pneumonia and this time prescribed Doxycycline Hyclat for a month, 2 x's a day. I am in the 3rd week of taking antibiotics. While the cough has lessened, I still have the low grade fever.
After a month of different type of antibiotics for pnuemonia, I finally got the right one (Levaquin) which cleared my lungs and got permission to begin exercising (slowly) last Monday. Has anyone experienced recovery from pneumonia and what I can expect during the recovery period? I have an anxiety problem and I can't tell if my current symptoms of fatigue, dizziness, weakness are normal recovery symptoms or are they a product of my anxiety?
for a few weeks then spiking a fever, finally went to ER, found that I had pneumonia. Very surprised cause it wasn't like any pneumonia that I'd ever seen. Then got it again in February, Now, I think I have it again. How do we know we have it? I mean, that's pretty serious. But honestly, the feeling that I have before the pneumonia is the feeling of having a bad MS day. Besides the fever. Just confused.
Roughly a week later, started feeling the tightness in my chest again, along with a feeling of heat generating from my core, low fever and incredible fatigue. The chest x-ray showed the pneumonia had returned or never left (?). Again I was given an antibiotic shot and this time, Levaquin and Sulfamethoxazole. I have been on this for 3 days now. The fatigue and fever are still there, the tightness in my chest is gone. I am otherwise, a healthy 46 year old female.
FYI, it is probably due to Mycoplasma pneumoniae and/or Chlamydia pneumniae, which are bacteria that some of the usual antibiotics won't work on. It depends on what they gave you. But it causes "walking pneumonia". It usually will resolve in a couple of months. So if you are tired of antibiotics then the natural method give above may help soothe the hacking cough. Usually, you may also have a low grade fever too.
I am 41 yr old , relatively healthy, chase around a 2 yr old all day and drive around the 13 yr old I was very active Now I was diagnosed with pneumonia from chest x-ray in ER when I woke up feeling sick and high fever. I was put on cylrathomicin (not sure of spelling) for 10 days, its been 6 days now and although the fever is gone, the coughing fatigue and nausea are still here. I went to my primary doctor yesterday and he said, "you have pneumonia!!!
I was hospitalized for five days with pneumonia last January. Recent x-rays and lung function tests show that I'm recovered, however, I have a persisent cough and feel a slight flutter in my heart. I have not felt like I'm back to normal since my bout with pneumonia. I take Humira for arthritis, but all my doctors seem to think that this is not an issue. I have a healthy lifestyle and have never smoked - should I pursue a medical answer or a nutritional/dietary change?
I was diagnosed one month ago with lower left lobe pneumonia, which came on acutely with sharp pain on inhalation, and then developed into fever, aches, etc. I was put on antibiotics and rest, and was still not 100 percent, but making slow progress. Now, exactly one month later, I have come down with a fever again, along with a weird tickly feeling in the throat/chest, and moderately dry cough, terrible body aches, fatigue, etc.

I still have the unproductive cough, the stuffy nose, no fever, extreme fatigue, pain in right ribs, and rattle in lungs. i have had Pneumonia twice before, both times starting out as Bronchitis. Any help in this would be greatly appreciated!!!!
I beat it the first time, but it returned as stage 4 metastatic in my lung. I was diagnosed with pneumonia ths week. Was this due to a compromised immune system (I very rarely have colds/flu)? How contagious am I? I am treating it as I would a very bad cold: antibiotics, bed rest, fluids, light, nutritious foods. What should my most urgent concerns be?
I have DCM but am coping with the symptoms reasonably well (when compared to how much worse it could be). My 7yo son has just been diagnosed with a viral pneumonia, and is very symptomatic.
I have been diagnosed with everything from bronchitis to pneumonia for over a month. Steroids and Antibiotics have not worked. The doc said he noticed on my chest x ray that I have a diaphragmatic hernia. I asked him how I got that (I had never heard of it) and he said he suspects it was congenital. He said he looked at x ray from 5 years ago and it was also there and appeared identical to the new one.
I have tingling in my feet...most of the pains are in my neck and shoulder....fatigue is so strong and lack of energy...I also do feel a very slight sensation of congestion in my chest..I have not seen any rashes on my skin or any noticable nodes......what is this?
I was placed on Cardizem CD 240 mg, Coumadin 5 mg and scheduled for Cardioversion. I had come down with pneumonia 4 months prior while visiting New York City. Four to six weeks after the pneumonia bout I began my normal routine which includes dancing any cycling. Since I'm a serious bicyclist, I use a heart monitor to measure my performance and noted that my rate was very high (140's on the flats). My abilities did improve, however, they still were very poor.
During this time my only symptoms were a slight cough to mainly clear sputum production and slight fatigue or weakenss, with large amounts of green sputum. One month of this and I returned to the GP who conducted a x-ray showing Slight pneumonia. A second round of Antibiotics has been taken for the past four days. I still am coughing green sputum in mornings but not as bad. Weakness is better. Question should the two rounds of antibiotics of taken care of this???
We had an xray done and they saw cloudy-ness all throughout his lungs, which led them to believe it was a bacterial pneumonia and not aspiration pneumonia. He is on two different antibiotics, zenequin and clavamox and has been for the last week and a half. We've also been inducing a cough 3-4 times a day to assist him in clearing his lungs. We are seeing slight improvement in his cough, which isn't as frequent and not as productive, but he is still very fatigued.
Hi all, I haven't been on for a while, and if this question has already been answered Forgive me please. My question is with Pneumonia and Multiple sclerosis, I had pneumonia twice last year and now it seems I have it again. I feel horrible and the numbness, fatigue, weakness is back full force. what do you think?
People that had the flu were showing up negative on the test but then developing pneumonia that goes hand in hand with H1N1. After my children recovered within 2-3 days..I thought, it must not have been H1N1. They were fine...no problem. Then it happened..ME the mom that never gets sick, started to feel not so good by Sun. I shrugged it off as being tired and allergies. Then the fever kick in. I started with a 101.6. I would take 2 tylenol. Within 2 hours my fever was up to 102.7.
The fever, chest pain, cough, fatigue and elevated white blood cell count are all consistent with the diagnosis of pneumonia. In addition, if the doctor heard abnormal sounds (rales or crackles) when he/she listened to your lungs, antibiotic treatment for pneumonia would be appropriate, despite the X-ray interpretation being “within normal range.” If you are raising phlegm, submitting a specimen of it to the lab for bacterial culture could be helpful.
Hello and hope you are doing well. A pneumonia is usually a segmental infection of the lungs and can be seen in X rays. If the radiologist has ruled out pneumonia, its unlikely that you may be having it. Your symptoms could be due to a lower respiratory infection. You may need antibiotics and anti inflammatory medications to tackle the infection and inflammation. Discuss these options with your consulting doctor.
My father who is 82 years old was admitted to hospital 8 days ago with pneumonia. Since then he has had a low grade fever hovering around 37.5. He also had a chest infection which has not cleared up. Today he is very tired and sleeping all the time which is unusual for him. When I questioned the nurses about him sleeping all the time they said he must have been disturbed during the night. Is this sleepiness usual with this illness. I find it strange as he has not been like this all week.
Hi there, This doesn't sound good especially as you are pregnant. I would get someone to take you to your family doctor as soon as possible. Consider it a follow up to your last appointment and you could tell your doctor's receptionist that you need an urgent appointment. Good luck.
