Pneumonia recovery fatigue

Common Questions and Answers about Pneumonia recovery fatigue


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 n tn What you describe is not the normal or most common course, 6 months after recovery from acute pneumonia. That is pneumonia occurring in a person with previously completely healthy lungs. There may be a problem with your lungs, for example chronic bronchitis or a condition called bronchiectasis, or an inherited abnormality such as cystic fibrosis (CF) or alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency or that you had an atypical pneumonia, one prone to cause tissue destruction.
Avatar n tn My Dr asked me to get another chest X-RAY done after a month to make sure Pneumonia is gone completely. I found on internet recovery of Pneumonia can takes 30 – 90days. I am still not sure that all my problem are because of Pneumonia or acid reflux or something else..... If I will find anything helpful for you (or me) I will defiantly post it.
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.
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 n tn I was diagnosed with pneumonia two weeks ago, and I have entered what I am terming a 'throat-clearing' phase of my pneumonia recovery (left lobe was affected), which I'll say began when I started a 10-day antibiotic course two weeks ago today.
Avatar f tn After the initial phase of myocarditis, some patients can experience complete recovery, others may develop chronic heart failure due to injured heart muscle. Recovery will depend as well on medical therapy to reduce heart size, reduce the heart's afterload by vessel dilatation, increase contractility, etc. Patients who have had myocarditis are at some risk for sudden unexpected, potentially fatal, heart rhythm abnormalities.
Avatar m tn // I noticed someone on that thread said to get the endocrine system checked out. Have you done that yet? Since you already posted on the above old thread, you may have already also seen these threads: http://www.
Avatar n tn It is so early in his recovery and you, your husband and your daughter have a lot to look forward to. Although your husband isn't a spring chicken he's not all that old, either, and that will help his recovery. You will be amazed at how he bounces back. My husband (56 at the time) had a stroke last July and he has problems with his eyes. He has developed double vision. He, at first, was paralyzed on his left side but all that came back. He's almost back to his old self.
Avatar n tn I'm wondering how paralysis recovery works? She has physio and Occupational therapy working her muscles but do people with paralysis get some motor function back and if so what type of time frame (3,6,12, months?)Is there any recent research or therapy to aid in the motor recovery process such as magnetic stimulation or emg that we should be considering or inquiring about? Any questions I should be asking the rehab or dr.'s to find out about my mother's prognosis for it....
Avatar f tn The severe illness and deaths associated with seasonal influenza epidemics are in large part the result of secondary complications, including primary viral pneumonia, secondary bacterial pneumonia (particularly with group A streptococcus, Staphylococcus aureus, and Streptococcus pneumoniae), and exacerbations of underlying chronic conditions. These same complications may occur with H1N1 infection.
Avatar m tn My husband has been ill with severe/fulminant micoplasma pneumonia for over 3 months now. He also suffered the complication of a pneumothorax which resulted in 2 aspirations and finally a CT guided drain was inserted. He had numerous courses of antibiotics but it took such a long time to clear. Although he has been very poorly I now feel he is delaying his recovery through obsessive deep breathing, negativity and anxiety.
620048 tn?1358021835 Meg, it can take a really loooooooooooong time to recover fully from pneumonia. You can get rid of the bacteria/bug that caused it and still have the residual fatigue that comes with pneumonia. throw that on top of MS and COPD (am I remembering that you have that, too?) and you can have a hard time getting back up to speed. Just keep taking it easy - indulge yourself in lots of naps, do as little strenuous activity as possible and as Sarah said, pay attn to your body.
168732 tn?1311715679 Have had a bad cough for 2 weeks and today the x-ray showed small area in left lung that suggests pneumonia. Almost put me in hospital for I.V. for a day, but then blood work showed WBC 4.7 and Neuts 36, so they put me on the 5 day Levaquin 750 oral regiment and could go home. BUT, when they called my hep doc., he said I may have to "delay the next shot on Tues". They want to watch CBC and WBC closely to let the antibiotics be effective.
Avatar m tn I was kicked out of school age 14 because they refused to believe chronic fatigue syndrome was a real illness and because it was the top school in my city they thought I was bringing down their attendance records. I have other questions to ask but I just wanted to discuss it with other people my age without the whole focus being totally on questions liek "what symptoms do you have?
Avatar n tn Hiya i had a 10cm mass and my right ovary removed 2 and 1/2 weeks ago. I went into hospital the night before for a pre op assesment and went down to theatre at 11am the last time i remember seing the clock was 11.20am and i came round at 2pm. The surgeon tried to do it thru the camera in my belly button but wasnt able to and had to cut me along my bikini line to remove them.
Avatar n tn I also still have slight joint aches and fatigue. I am supposed to be travelling in a week and am trying my very hardest to be better by then. Please let me know what's going on and if I should go back to the doctor. Thanks!
Avatar m tn I have been struggling with fatigue and brain fog for several years now. I have managed to maintain a steady gym routine, however. Recently, though, I am suddenly losing strength and my fatigue is worsening. I have been to many different doctors and specialists with the only consistent and abnormal findings being: a) Low vitamin d. Currently about 23 but has been unmeasurably low. Vitamin d supplements seem to increase my fatigue and concentration problems.
Avatar f tn I was given antibiotics, fluids and pain killers intraveneously for the first two weeks then orally for a further 2 weeks. My recovery so far seems good and Im now pain free. I do have lots of dizzy spells where Im forgetfull and I fatigue very easily. I quit smoking at the start of my illness and havent smoked since and never will again.
Avatar n tn Took until 15 Mar to get medical attention. Diagnosed with Pneumonia and sinus infections. Given a 10 day course of antibiotics, steroids, and bronchial sprays (dilation). Finished meds on 25 Mar. I was recovering rapidly with lungs clear. I had already trained for and entered the Ford Ironman 70.3 scheduled on 29 Mar. Against medical advice, I competed in and finished this event. Felt good for the first 2 days. Now, the fatigue is back and have had stomach nausea for the last 3 days, etc...
