What are the signs of pneumonia?

I think my husband has pneumonia.


Answer by  Amie1084 (181)

There are two types of pneumonia, being bacteria and non-bacteria, and both have similar symptoms. Symptoms can include: cough (sometimes with mucus from lungs), fever, shaking/chills, fast and shallow breathing, chest pain, increased heart rate, fatigue, feeling weak, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. I would contact your doctor if symptoms persist.

If you think you have pneumonia some signs would be coughing, fever, and just simply not feeling well. You probably have a very wet cough and could even have trouble breathing. You should see your doctor right away if you have any of these symptoms.

Pneumonia can be very serious. A lot of symptoms are vague and can be confused with other illnesses. Chest pain, or cough with high fever are just a few signs.


Answer by  Krissie (551)

Symptoms start similarly to a cold, but they get much more severe--after the coughing and sneezing and sore throat, there's usually a high fever and chills, and the coughing could bring up bloody mucus from the lungs. If you're not sure, it's best to consult a doctor to be sure.

Some of the signs of pneumonia are a sudden stabbing pain under the shoulder in your back. Cold and flu like symptoms. As well as a fever if you have any of those symptoms you need to either get to your doctor right away or go to your nearest emergency room for imediate care.

People have shortness of breath and chest pains. They can have a fever and a sore throat. They can have a bad cough and cough up blood.

Pneumonia typically presents with chest pain, coughing (often productive), wheezing and general malaise. If there is difficulty breathing, seek emergency treatment immediately, otherwise see a physician for treatment.
