Understanding the Signs & Symptoms of Pneumonia

Caused by breathing bacteria into the lungs, pneumonia can be dangerous and even deadly if not properly treated. Pneumonia—even in minor cases (often referred to as “walking pneumonia”)—can cause symptoms that may include:

  • Chest pain when breathing
  • Coughing, particularly coughing that produces mucus
  • Breathing difficulties
  • Fever or chills
  • Fatigue

If you are experiencing pneumonia symptoms, it’s important to seek treatment as quickly as possible to promote healing and prevent the condition from worsening.

"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."
