Pneumonia is a fairly common condition, and it can impact virtually anyone. In most cases, pneumonia clears up on its own within two to three weeks. However, in some instances, pneumonia complications can be serious if not treated quickly. Therefore, if you suspect you may have pneumonia, it’s essential to seek medical care as soon as possible. That’s where PhysicianOne Urgent Care in West Hartford, Connecticut, comes in. Not only are we open 365 days per year at flexible hours, but we even offer Virtual Visits, so you can speak with one of our medical professionals from the comfort of your home.

Pneumonia Symptoms & Treatment

Pneumonia is an infection of the lungs that causes the air sacs to fill with fluid. Your body is more susceptible to contracting pneumonia during or after a cold or flu. Common symptoms include:

  • Coughing with mucus
  • Fever
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Chest pain
  • General feelings of tiredness and weakness

Treatment for pneumonia involves curing the infection and preventing any further complications. Proper treatment depends on whether the infection is viral or bacterial—antibiotics may be used to treat bacterial pneumonia, but they will not help treat an infection caused by a virus. Fortunately, when diagnosed early and promptly treated, pneumonia will clear up relatively quickly.

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.
