3 weeks ago my oldest son (6) came down with pneumonia. He was put on meds and had to switch meds because he had a bad reaction to one of the meds. Well after a week of being on meds and rest he started to recover from it. Well last Thrusday we were out riding bikes. In the middle of riding he stops, drops the bike and sits on the side walk. His face turned red and there was a look of pain on his face. I ask him what's wrong and noticed he was struggling to breath. He say's he can't breath with much effort. I carry him in and we do two breathing treatments before he starts being able to breath good. Friday and Saturday I notice he was coughing some. Sunday he starts complaining of his chest hurting, a slight sore throat and not feeling well. He was not running a fever but complaining of certain problems. This morning when he got up he was still complaining of chest pain, a sore throat and a cough. I called his asthma/allergy doctor to inform them of what was going on and hopefully ease my mind that it's not the pneumonia coming back. The doctor told us to just keep doing what we are doing and call with an update in a day or two. I don't like his casual attitude he takes. I complained for twoweeks before my son got pneumonia that something wasn't right with him and both the ped and the asthma/allergy doctor said just keep doing what I am doing. Am I overreacting?
