I’m 19 year old female that had really bad pneumonia

I’m 19 year old female that had really bad pneumonia in boot camp back in March. Since then I’ve had problems breathing, blacking out when working out, lightheadedness, etc. The corpsman told me it was bronchitis, then that my lungs were collapsing, and then back to Bronchitis. They really don’t know and they’re sending me to pulmonology, but I just want to know if I’m wasting my time by going.

Hi there, my 19 year old daughter just was diagnosed with bacterial pneumonia after about 5 days of having a bad cold. She was given antibiotics azithromycin 250 mgS for 5 days. She is flying back east in 5 days to return back to college....I am concerned about her flying without being completely healthy yet.

Hello. I was dx with walking pneumonia today and put in erythromycin and robitussin AC. There is mucous in my airway 100% of the time. The robitussin AC is not helping with suppressing the cough or thinning mucous. I am 33 year old female by the way. I have a consistent fever between 100-103 depending on what stage Advil is at. And the worst sore throat of my life which is getting worse from coughing. I don t know what to do. I ve been awake for almost 24 hours because I can t sleep. Would a heating pad help my chest? The only reason I m not calling my GP at the moment is because it s 2am and I feel bad.
