How Do You Know If You Have It ??

Have hard time Breathing More than usual Was wondering what the signs were of pneumonia Before going to a doctor How does it feel ?

A MyCOPDTeam Member said:

There are lots of symptoms of pneumonia; you might have just one or a lot; depends on the variation of pneumonia you have. There are over 100, and the vaccines just work on about 30 of them, but they're the most frequent so it's a good idea to get the vaccine when your doc recommends it. You really don't want pneumonia!

Symptoms include: sob, wheezing, coughing, color of mucus, fever, chills, sweats, sore throat, fatigue and confusion. Notice that most of those are common for any exacerbation, so if you experience any of them, you need to see your doc to be sure they know what to treat you for.
