  • Definately something I would ask my doctor. I am so sorry you feel bad. Soup, tea, and when you can have some red apples, they are great for the lungs.
    Get some rest,

  • I have pneumonia now, and that sounds like what mine ended up being. It started with two days of a high fever. It sucks, I hope you dont have it. Drink lots of water, and rest, and if it gets any worse, see a doctor.

  • Get to the doc. When you've had pneumonia once, you're more likely to have a return. My husband has had it a few times and your symptoms sound just like his.
