If you’re experiencing any of the following symptoms, pneumonia could be to blame:

  • A frequent cough that may produce mucus
  • Chest tightness that worsens when coughing or breathing deeply
  • Shortness of breath
  • Fatigue
  • Fever, chills, or sweating
  • Headache

When to Seek Medical Treatment for Pneumonia Symptoms

Mild viral cases of pneumonia may resolve on their own with plenty of rest and fluids. However, it’s important to visit a reputable medical provider like PhysicianOne Urgent Care if your cough continues for more than a few days, you have persistent shortness of breath or chest tightness, or your fever lingers around 102 degrees Fahrenheit. Our physician-led team can identify the cause of your symptoms, prescribe antibacterial or antifungal medication to clear the infection (if appropriate), and recommend ways to reduce symptoms and help your body fight the illness more effectively.

Some cases of pneumonia warrant emergency care in a hospital setting. Call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room if any of the following symptoms develop:

  • Difficulty breathing
  • Chest pain
  • Confusion or lethargy
  • Bluish lips or fingernails
  • A fever of 103 degrees Fahrenheit or higher

"The overall care I received was excellent! I also appreciate your affiliation with Yale New Haven Hospital."

Derby, CT

"Throughout the visit I felt like the staff really cared. The Doctor took his time talking with me about my symptoms, and I felt like he listened to all my concerns and took that into consideration when recommending the right treatment. Thank you!"

Hamden, CT

"I had to take my son in for an ear infection following a sudden change in temperament at daycare. He was inconsolable the entire car ride but when we got there and by the time we left this care facility he was back to his normal happy go lucky little two year old boy. I highly recommend PhysicianOne Urgent Care."

Westwood, MA

"I wanted to take a moment to thank you for the attention you gave me last week. My son was started on antibiotics and ear drops. Within 24 hours he began to feel better. The poor kid had been going to school in tears because he was afraid of missing any more days, but feeling (and looking) just awful! He's not been able to even think about lacrosse practice, but thanks to starting him on antibiotics, he was thrilled to return to practice today."
