Pneumonia lung rattle

Common Questions and Answers about Pneumonia lung rattle

pneumonia

A few days ago I started to have a vibration/rattle in my right lung. The rattle/vibration comes and goes and is really bad throughout the morning to mid-afternoon. I was treated at the beginning of the cough for a double ear infection and was given oral antibiotics for 7 days. The cough started to go away and break up but by the time I finished the full 7 days the cough came back worse.
In April I developed a feeling of one side of my chest rattling, the doctor took an xray and diagnosed mild pneumonia in the left lung. I was not at all unwell, no fever and the cough was only moderately worse than usual. I took oral antibiotics and the follow up xray showed complete resolution and concluded clear lungs.
I still have the original cough, which produces small amounts of clear mucous and more disconcerting to me is that I still feel a rattle in my left lung when I breathe deeply especially when lying down. Three doctor when listening to my chest have said it sounds clear. Can/should a doctor listen to your chest while lying down as well? What is the significance of a rattle felt by me but not hear by the doctor? Can this ever be normal 5 months after pneumonia, could it be residual fluid?

I was not at all unwell, no fever and the cough was only moderately worse than usual. I took oral antibiotics and the follow up xray showed complete resolution and concluded clear lungs. However I still feel a rattle and grating on the left side of my chest when I inhale deeply, I only feel this when lying down, doctors have not been able to hear it.
I am a 29 year old female, never smoked, healthy weight and beside breathing and anxiety issues healthy.
Now, going through the net I understand that this could be anything from a scar tissue to lung cancer.Just for my information is there any kind symptoms or something that could tell these extremeties apart and what %ages of these spots usually end up as cancer? I have never smoked in my life, I am not coughing, no breathing problems what so ever, in fact pretty healthy 6 feet tall 190lbs male. Any kind of information is most welcome. Thanx in advance.
No, does not sound like pneumonia. You are throwing up contents from your stomach. You do NOT throw up contents from the lung. I have had pneumonia and there was no vomiting involved. I had a severe cough, and could hear my own lungs rattle when I breathed.
Given that it is now nearly 4 months since the bout of pneumonia, you deserve further diagnostic evaluation by a lung specialist. If the signs are truly localized to one lung, the one that had the pneumonia and especially if a current x-ray fails to demonstrate complete resolution, the lung specialist will probably suggest that he/she perform bronchoscopy and/or a CT scan of the lungs to determine the reason for this lingering problem.
I developed a sinus cold a month ago, the cold went to my chest and most of the congestion is gone away. I still hear a rattle and feel like there is something still in my left lung. I developed stabbing apins a few days ago. They come and go and do not last long. This happens in the left backside of my ribs. My doc told me just to monitor it as it can be muscular from coughing. I would like to mention I did not have this pain when the cough was productive. Should I be alarmed?
I recently had a bad viral and bacterial infection in my lungs and blood (with pneumonia). I have been feeling better however after recieving the antibiotics beginning with amoxacillin, I have been getting red blochy rashes on my neck, chest,back, and biceps. My rash does not itch but does feel very hot. Most importantly my rash will appear for no longer then 10 minutes and then dissapear. Hours or so later it will come back in the same spot with minimal if any swelling.
From what I've read in books and on the Internet, people usually get pleurisy after they've had pneumonia or some other respiratory infection, certain cancers, blood clots, etc. I haven't had any of those things wrong with me. I haven't been having any chest pain at all today. I'm still a little bit short of breath, but that might be because of my anxiety disorder. As for the chest rattling, it's gone too. What's weird is, it went away after I ate. So here are my questions: 1.
I read that lung illnesses are very common right after detox. Well, I had my first about 3 weeks after detox. Then 2nd only shortly after. In March I went to doc for sinus infection which gives a throat drip. He gave me amoxcillin & Prehist D. It worked good. Now, April, here I go again. I got another bottle of amoxcillin & Prehist today. It's gotten so bad that I now have laryngitis, that never went away since March.
In 2006 my roommate and I both got a cold, she got better, but I got worse after a week. I had a high fever, dry cough, a rattle sound when breathing, cold in my throat, etc. These new symptoms lasted almost two weeks. Being a broke college freshman with no insurance, I just used whatever cough/cold medicines I could get my hands on, and I eventually got better. Except for this persistent cough that has gotten worse over the years.
I have no signs of what is considered COPD...No coughing, no wheezing, no rattle .....My neuro has me use Xanax. Unfortunately it takes two and today I know why they work. It knocks me out and when I wake, I have calmed down. I agree, it is like nothing you have experienced. When I was a very young woman I had pneumonia and had trouble breathing. This is a much different experience. There are signs when it is going to act up. I can't cough. I can't clear my throat.
He seems to be recovering over the next couple days, but he is still on life support because he isn’t fully responsive. Within 7 days of his brain surgery, his lung collapses. He also has COPD. The doctors are trying to stabilize him enough to get him into special care rehab, but they start losing hope because he stops being responsive. He will only try to open his eyes when you call his name.
During my hospital stay I had the MRSA staph infection in my big incision, a wound vac on 3 of the incisions, pneumonia and they removed 40 ounces of fluid from my right lung. My last surgery was December 18, 2007 and during that surgery they fixed a hernia that was caused from all of the cuts and reversed the ileostomy. I am getting stronger every day. Some days are better than others. I still have pain--I think from the scar tissue.
bleach cleaning a camper in the winter) The more I had bronchitis the worse I got till I only got pneumonia all the time. But I smoked for over 20 years too, a pack to a pack and a half a day. Then they noticed nodules in my lungs and liver in 2002 or 2003 I think. Yes I am not smoking now. Was sepses in March of 2007 and they found me to have I forgot what they called it but it was like an ulcerated colitis that could have leaked into my system.
