Are you experiencing a fever, chills, coughing, shortness of breath, chest pain, a headache, throat soreness, and loss of appetite? If so, you may have pneumonia. Luckily, if you’re in Southbury, Connecticut, you can receive the treatment you need at PhysicianOne Urgent Care. Our skilled providers have extensive experience treating pneumonia and walking pneumonia (a milder form of the illness).
How Do You Get Pneumonia?
Pneumonia occurs when a bacterial, fungal, or viral infection causes the air sacs within the lungs to become inflamed. Although pneumonia can have various causes, it most commonly develops when someone inhales airborne droplets produced when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or talks.
How Long Does Pneumonia Last?
The recovery period for pneumonia varies depending on the severity of the condition—some individuals feel better after about a week, while it can take other people more than a month to get back to their usual activities. An experienced provider can provide a better estimate that’s customized to your specific circumstances.
