User :   I have shortness of breath, wheezing, stuffy nose, im caughing up flem, and my throat is killing me. I went to the hospital last night and they told me that i only have asthma. I think that because it was the first day that it started it was to early for them to tell if it was pneomia. My best friend has it right now and i told her all my symptoms and she thinks i have it too, what do i do? I dont want to go back to the hospital for nothing.
