Hello there I think I may have pneumonia, I have

Hello there I think I may have pneumonia, I have been coughing deeply in my lungs for 10 days and my chest is sore and I have cold like symptoms and there’s definitely a lot of phlegm in my chest but it’s not coming out. I am getting worried.

I have been taking over the counter meds but they are not working. I am in Italy and not going to be home for 5 days. Do you think that I can wait until I get home to see your doctor ?

Hello, 1. How do I know if I have pneumonia? I had a fever of 104 F (Thurs) and I felt as though I had been kicked in the chest. My cough is deep and very phlemy. Today (Sat)the fever has hovered around 100.8 to 98.8. The chest doesn t hurt but the coughing and phlem persist and I have been persistently nauseous. 2. How do I know if the clarithromycin prescribed is hurting my liver? I read that nausea and pain in the upper stomach are signs, as well as dark urine. I had dark urine, but before this drug. I was first started on a tetracyclin drug but was switched as I was going to a holiday in the sun. Maybe it caused the dark urine. Some holiday! I have lost appetite and taste and am thinking of stopping the drug after 2 doses. Any help would be great. Thanks, Claire

Hello, I had the flu 2 weeks ago and made it through it in a few days but I have not felt right ever since. I have been back to the doctor and had blood work and urine taken. I went because the color of my skin had become yellow and I had a sever cough. The Urine showed positive Bilirubin, trace ketones and the blood test came back all good for my liver, pancreas and kidney but showed mild anemia. I have also had a chest x-ray and that is clear yet my doctor says I have pneumonia. I still have fatigue and pain in my chest, mid and lower back I have lost 6 pounds in the last week and my appetite is still low. No fever and I am drinking plenty of water to stay hydrated. In July I was told I had gallstones which the first doctor who ordered the blood and urine thinks is the problem but my primary has dismissed that and says its pneumonia. Still not feeling good and not sure who to believe at this point. Please let me know what questions you have and I appreciate your opinion.
