Could it be pneumonia??
ok well.. i am almost 13 years old and recently had a cold... ((im a girl)) and i have noticed that i have been caughing alot and wheezing..... and this gross stuff has come up =p.... i have had pneuminia before.... could i have pneumonia???
you have pnuimonia go to the docter as soon as you can
god knows and sees else Yahoo
you have pnemonia
can only be confirmed with a chest xray
you must go to a doctor and get antibiotics or you will get very sick and die---no kidding
especially if your phleghm is not clear it means you have an infection
I could be bronchitis, or it could just be a plain old upper respiratory infection, which is what I had. (I was coughing ALOT, wheezing, and phlegm was coming up).
Go to the doctor - you'll feel alot better. I was prescribed cough syrup and an inhaler. After a couple of days, I'm 75% better.
Diagnosing pneumonia involves asking about symptoms (like the gross stuff), listening to your chest, and if there's enough suspicion of pneumonia, *then* an x-ray. Asthma is of course another possibility which would *also* necessitate a doctor visit if you aren't on medication.
GO TO THE DOCTOR!!!!
it might be pneumonia, but there are other possibilities too, all of which require medical attention in order for you to get better and if you don't get help can cause permanent damage or death. my father died of necrotic pneumonia. don't ask for online strangers to diagnose you. GET REAL HELP!
So far away
I wouldn't be so quick to call it pneumonia. You could have asthma. I've been to a lot of doctors in different states who initially say it's pneumonia and then later say it's asthma.
I would much rather start off with an inhaler than to get Xray's and antibiotics. Ask your parent's and doctor's advice.
