    Yes I have and it is horrible :cry: Took forever to get my strength back and I was in my 30's at the time . Sleep, rest, sleep , rest
    and for PETES SAKES no more cutting the grass :shock:

    Coughing up is good , it means you are getting the stuff up and out , which is what you need :thumbup:

    And be sure and ask about the shot I was told since I had it once was a better candidate to get it again .

    keep us posted

    So sorry you are sick Alaska Sunshine! I had it at the first of this year and made three trips to the doctor and three different rounds of antibiotic to clear it up. Hang in there!

    I had it in high school. I had not missed one day of school, and I spent a week in the hospital, and then several days after at home. I coughed up tons of yucky stuff,, and that lasted for a long time. I also have asthma, and I was not able to catch my breath easily for weeks. Take the other women's advice, and take it slow and easy. You also might ask your doctor about a cool mist vaporizer to loosen up the phlegm. It is so gross!!

    Ok my doctors off said it is not bacterial pneumonia, so I am guessing viral? Thanks for all your input and information! I am resting, and drinking lots of water!. My chest is definatly feeling heavier and my face (jaw) hurt less, but still a bit painful. And of course still coughing up lots of "gunk"Headache still and sore back too. I am so surprised at how long this is lasting. Also taking Micinex as suggested.

    So today I did get a chest x-ray. And it is very good. Just dealing with pneumonia and sinus junk! I am so glad I had one, it relieves my mind. Chest is tight. Thanks so much for your kind words. I have listened and continue to listen. :-D

    Good for you. Viral pneumonia is the pits. Fluids, rest and more rest. I understand the jaw, ribs, etc. hurting from all the coughing. You might try the hot shower therapy (we use it for really bad asthma days). You essentially turn your bathroom into a steamroom. Turn on the shower (hot water only), close bathroom door and let the shower steam up the place. It might help a little but it's hard on wallpaper. :-)
