What Are the Signs of Pneumonia?

Pneumonia is an infection of the lungs that may result from viruses, bacteria, or fungi. The symptoms of pneumonia can range from very mild—as is the case with walking pneumonia—to disruptive and potentially life-threatening. It’s common to experience a combination of the following symptoms:

  • Shortness of breath
  • Frequent coughing that may produce mucus
  • Chest tightness that worsens when breathing deeply or coughing
  • Fatigue
  • Headache
  • Fever, sweating, or chills
  • Nausea or vomiting

How Is Pneumonia Treated?

Pneumonia treatment options will vary according to the cause of the illness. For instance, bacterial and fungal infections are treated with antibacterial or antifungal medications, respectively, while treatment for viral infections typically focuses on relieving symptoms and preventing complications.

Severe cases of pneumonia should be treated in a hospital setting. Call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room if you or someone around you experiences trouble breathing, chest pain, confusion, very high fever, or bluish fingernails or lips.

Patient
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!"

"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."

Patient
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."
