I was once told by a PA that benign watery ear canal cyst is a sign of walking pneumonia. I have searched on line for information to confirm this theory. Do you know anything about this?
My son was diagnosed with walking pneumonia on 11/10/09. His doctor put him on a C-pact. However, after he finshed the medicine five days later, he still has had mild coughing during the day but very bad coughing at night. The coughing is so bad that he will cough up mucus or food that he has eaten. His doctor on 11/18/09 started him on pennicillin for ten days and loratadine which is a antihistamaine.
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.
Yes it could be pneumonia and if you are still experiencing the symptoms you describe, when you get this message, you should definitely seek medical attention.
Well, my husband had the same symptoms as well, but when he woke up today, it was harder for him to breathe so he went to the hospital and found out he had walking pneumonia but was given nothing to treat it because they said he has to get over it himself. Now I'm worried that it might also be what I have, but they found out by X-ray, and I know I shouldn't get an X-ray while 20 weeks preganant. And even if that was it, would they even treat me for it?

I was diagnosed with walking pneumonia about 2 months ago, but the symptoms showed up a month or two prior to seeing a doctor. I went on a month of antibiotics, but never really improved.

I was diagnosed with walking pneumonia two weeks ago. I was given Z Pack. I took it. It seemed to work for a couple of days then the symptoms returned. Doctor gave me another Z Pack. Same thing. It worked for a couple of days and then the mychoplasma returned. Question 1: Why did Z pack not get rid of it? Question 2: I'm on Doxycycline now. Will that get rid of it? I'm terrified to even get out of bed for fear that I will relapse again. I want my life back. Please help.
I am very sensitive to smoke, and that can trigure a sinus infection-but can that really turn into walking pneumonia? Is it possible It has never totally left my system? Any help would do. Thank you.
Walking pneumonia” is a clinical diagnosis that usually means a viral infection in the lungs. It could have a positive finding on an x-ray, coughing, lack of energy and possibly pain that is felt in the back. It does not usually respond to antibiotics because it is a viral infection and may take 1-3 weeks to completely resolve. Pleurisy is an inflammation of the lining of the lungs that can accompany pneumonia. It does cause pain and naproxen is fine for this.

I had walking pneumonia four months ago. Now I have it again. I don't know why I have it again. Last time I had it I threw all of my cosmetics, tooth brushes, toiletries away because I was afraid I was re-infecting myself. I bought all new make up when I got better, should I throw it all away again to avoid reinfection?

Now on to my question. In November of last year I developed walking pneumonia. Then in December I developed pneumonia and was hospitalized for 2 days. While in the hospital I was given breathing treatments every 6 hours with albuteral and something else. Then in February I developed walking pneumonia again. Then in April I was hospitalized at John Peter Smith Hospital for an automobile accident and while in the hospital they were worried I was trying to get pneumonia again.
I feel for you, as my symptoms are quite similar. I was diagnosed with walking pneumonia 10 days ago (positive x-ray) that I'd probably had for several weeks. Doc put me on doxycycline and an albuterol inhaler --- and like an idiot, thought I'd be back at work the next day. The symptoms have increased and not decreased, to include back, neck and joint pain --- and pure exhaustion. I'm still coughing and sleeping alot. This week's xray was clear and numerous stat blood tests were normal.
I recovered from varicella pneumonia back in June, after being intubated for a week 1/2. I had CHF, and pulmonary effusions. From what I gather I am lucky to be here. My question is , I feel like a walking medical journal. I am constantly getting pleurisy, and have developed asthma. It seems I am constantly coughing, and my lungs seem to always feel heavy,( Mucousy). Is this just a long term problem that I will be facing? The doctors tell me that my lungs seem to be clearing up...
After running a few tests (Regular Xray, a special lung xray, and by the next day a CT scan) they said I had a very severe pneumonia. Thankfully it was only in my right lung but they set the blockage was so severe that they thought I had a PE (the CT ruled it out...PHEW!). But wound up having to spend about a week in the hospital where they put me on two different IV antibiotics and lots of fluids (I was so dehydrated they joked I urinated dust when I first came in).
Actually My Fiance experienced the same thing after He had what I believe to be walking pneumonia, and it turned out that he had some kind of stomach flu as well. What he did was eat as regulary as he could, took Tums, then tried Gasex, and after that he had a nasty bout of diahrea. Then he had to go on the CRAM (Cereal, Rice, and Milk)diet for a while (which turns out to supposedly be better than the BRAT-Banana, Rice, Applesause, and Toast)diet, but either one will help you).
Yuckers!!!! Pneumonia? Please take care of yourself and feel better soon. We are all wishing you a speedy recovery! Take It Easy!
Sorry for taking so long with this. I'm sure you heard about the mid-Tennessee flooding so my mind has busy praying for lots of people and trying to do what I can for people around that were affected, we were very fortunate. I went to ER and they found nothing. Even did blood work to find nothing unusual. So, off to neuro I went who ordered IV steroid. It's been approx. 3 weeks since then and will be going tomorrow.
My husband was diagnosed with possible walking pneumonia and has been on antibiotics for the past five days. I read that walking pneumonia is contagious, so am I at risk too? Are there tests that I can have that confirm if I have it?
24 hours after finishing my 10 days of Doxy, my sore throat started to come back as well as that general crummy feeling that walking pneumonia gives you. So, I went to the Dr. to see if the pneumonia was gone. He said he could not test me because I would test positive for WP for the next 6 months. He told me he thought I just had allergies (yeah right) but he gave me 7 more days of Doxy. I have been resting more than I have ever rested before.
