I am going to the Dr., but I was just wondering what you all think this might be. I had a cold that started over Thanksgiving Holidays back in November. The cough lasted for weeks through Christmas.

For the last two weeks my chest on the right side has hurt when I breathed in. I am tired and wear out easily, but I am working now and have three kids...that seems normal to me. But yesterday the coughing got worse, and I can hardly breathe in for the pain on the right side.

I sleep on my left side...when I rolled over during the night the pain was quite sharp but eventually subsided...later I rolled back over and it did the same thing. Does that sound like Pnuemonia to you? I have never felt the pain that sharp since it started hurting when I breathed in a couple of weeks ago.

Just curious.

that's a pretty good guess, but it's best you see your doctor, which you are, which is good, so well, everything is good

except for you who feel bad, but hopefully you'll feel better

i need a cup of tea, then i'll feel better

@mismi,
I thought Pnuemonia too, but I never had it, so I'm not sure of the symptoms.

@mismi,
Thanks Montana, Iz and dj...I really don't feel that bad - I can still do stuff...the tiredness just comes with the territory I think. I do get Bronchitus pretty regularly... Rolling Eyes

I just wanted to be prepared. I don't have to miss work do I?

When you make the appointment, tell them it's an emergency. They'll take you first.

@mismi,
It's the trouble breathing that's got me worried.

@mismi,
If you have pneu....... mmmmmmm..... not sure - wouldn't have thought so... but dunno.... but you shouldn't be picking up babies if it hurts girlie! Broken rib.... same deal.

They should x-ray you. Immediate test would be blood oxy levels - little thingy on the end of your finger - if your oxy levels are lower than normal then you should get immediate treatment.

Can't afford to take any chances...... RIGHT!

@mismi,
Yep - 2 of when FQ was weaning A-girl. We were sharing a bed and when A-girl cried I would go in to her whilst FQsis had cabbage leaves in her bra! (girl thing).... I had a really bad cough so I was coughing into the pillow at nite to try and make sure A-girl and FQ didn't waken - 2 snapped...... hospital for 8 days...... A-girl was weaned. Happy days.... blooooooody painful. Couldn't take a breath without HUGE pain.
