Pneumonia fatigue

Common Questions and Answers about Pneumonia fatigue


Avatar f tn 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...
Avatar n tn 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).
Avatar f tn 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.
1100598 tn?1413131026 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.
Avatar m tn Symptoms began Nov.
Avatar f tn These past two day I have experienced heavy chest pains, shortness of breathe, fatigue, and lots of coughing/ coughing up yellow mucus. I have had bronchiactesis since I was 6. I also have had 99.2 F fever, today. should I see a doctor to know what it is or will it just go away in time?
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar m tn 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?
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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!!!
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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?
Avatar m tn also a cough, usually fatigue, breathing problems ,feel very unwell, if you think you may have pneumonia go get checked out as you will need anti biotics
Avatar n tn 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.
459853 tn?1283144114 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!!!!
Avatar m tn Is this simply just a sign of post-pneumonia fatigue and after effects/sinusitis/bronchitis/cold? Or is there actually any real possibility of TB after having several clear sputum tests and many clear x-rays, and clear chest x-rays? I feel like in my home country (USA) TB probably wouldn't be considered in this case, but of course I am not in my home country. I am not especially worried (initial CT showed no abnormalities) plus several clean xrays and sputum tests.
670314 tn?1247879373 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.
Avatar m tn My symptoms never fully went away so I went back to the doctor today and I tested positive for walking pneumonia. Doc prescribed me cough syrup and Levofloxacin. My question is, Should i really take the Levofloxacin, is it impereitive? I've read up about it and it seems like some heavy duty stuff, I also hate taking antibiotics anyway and I was JUST on azithromycin that had me in constant diarrhea. I'd rather let my immune system run its course.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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?
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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???
Avatar n tn 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.
476834 tn?1228402309 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?
Avatar f tn 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?
279234 tn?1363108849 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 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.
