Some people get Pneumonia when they have just gotten over a cold. It sometimes starts off as a cold/flu and gets worse . Here's a site that may help: in the related source link below. Also, temperature has nothing to do with it . People with asthma, COPD, smokers are more likely to get pneumon…ia. Pregnant women are also more susceptible to pneumonia. Also having the flu, plus getting a bacteria such as Klebsiella can cause pneumonia. Generally, those with weakened immune systems such as the elderly, the very young, and those on certain medications are susceptible. THE SYMPTOMS that you get when you have pneumonia includes: Cough, often producing mucus (sputum) from the lungs. Mucus may be rusty or green or tinged with blood. . Fever, which may be less common in older adults. . Shaking, "teeth-chattering" chills (one time only or many times). . Fast, often shallow, breathing and the feeling of being short of breath. . Chest wall pain that is often made worse by coughing or breathing in. . Fast heartbeat. . Feeling very tired (fatigue) or feeling very weak (malaise). . Nausea and vomiting. . Diarrhea. You can also get pneumonia from aspirating, or sucking substances in the lungs (choking on food or drink). Pneumonia is caused from the accumulation fluid in the lungs. Bacteria, viruses and yeasts can cause this, a can anything that triggers an inflammatory response. Sputum can also be clear, yellow or white. This is what happens in your lungs : Your Alveoli get filled with fluid which makes it harder to breath or you remain quite breathless. its treated by antibiotics which is given by the hospital. if you get any symptoms, contact your GP immediately or it can impact and cause death if left for a while. If you neglect pneumonia you can die and it is very serious! Pneumonia can be caused by breathing in toxic smoke off fires, it can be caused by bacteria which can build up in your throat, sometimes you can start off with tonsillitis or a chest infection which can also turn into pneumonia. The best thing to do is contact your doctor and stay in bed relaxed. Te easier way if you are struggling in your breathing is to take and inhaler 10 puffs, 4 times a day. But that is the hospital's decision. Thank you for reading and if you think you have pneumonia i hope you get better soon! (MORE)
Pneumonia is a type of lung infection, caused by a virus orbacteria. Symptoms may be difficult breathing with pain that runsthrough the chest on inhalation, cough, headache and fever. It ischaracterized by the collection of fluid in the lung tissues. The most common signs and symptoms of pneumonia;… malaise anddecreased appetite, fever, cough (productive or non productive),difficulty breathing, chest pain (sharp and localized, worsens whenyou inhale deeply or are coughing) and excessive sweating. If youare having any of these signs or symptoms you should consult adoctor. To treat pneumonia: . Make a doctor's appointment. Pneumonia is different from theflu or common cold. You can treat these illnesses withover-the-counter medications. Because pneumonia involvesinflammation of the lungs, you'll need an antibiotic to cure theinfection and stop the inflammation. . Drink plenty of water. If you're dealing with a fever, drinkingplenty of fluids, especially water can lower your body temperature.Additionally, water and orange juice can boost the immune systemand speed recovery. . Take pain medication. Antibiotics can effectively treat theinfection. However, they don't treat pain and fever associated withpneumonia. To stop body aches you'll need to take aspirin oribuprofen. . Get plenty of rest. Some people continue with their normaldaily routine while recovering from pneumonia. This can slow thehealing process; and in some instances, make symptoms worse. Ifpossible, take a few days off. Rest gives your body the opportunityto heal. . To relieve congestion, apply a warm compress to the chest.Thick mucus can cause breathing problems, and excessive mucus canbring on an asthma attack. A warm compress helps loosen thickmucus. In turn, coughing brings up the mucus. If this doesn't work,your doctor can recommend an expectorant to help loosen themucus. (MORE)
It is usually treated with antibiotics. You should go to the doctor and usually they will give you some meds and a couple inhalers to take daily.

Pneumonia is an infection of the lungs caused by a bacteria, virus,or more rarely, a fungus. A person contracts pneumonia by beingexposed to the pathogen.
Pneumonia is a medical illness (an infection of the lungs) caused by a variety of pathogens (bacteria, viruses, fungi). Pneumococcus (full name Streptococcus Pneumoniae) is a bacteria and a common cause of pneumonia. Therefore vaccination against Pneumococcus will prevent some, but not all pneumonia…s. (MORE)
No it can't, because a shot contains a changed form of the virus/bacteria but still similar so your immune system can create the antibodies to kill the pneumonia virus/bacteria if you come in to contact with it again so you wont get ill from it. The shot may make you feel ill for a few days but it i…s not strong enough to give you the actual disease. The only way you could get it if the virus/bacteria hadn't been change properly (that wouldn't happen, so just ignore that i said that) or if you had been in contact with a serious disease/illness within the last 6 weeks, and they ask you that before they give it to you so in that case you will not be given the shot until 6 weeks.

You can get pneumonia anywhere. It starts off as a respiratoryinfection caused by a virus or bacteria, but if it worsens, it canresult in pneumoia.
People, possibly you want to know who are the groups, they are: Risk Factors Persons who are at greater risk of developing pneumonia include those who: Abuse alcohol (Alcohol interferes with the action of the white blood cells, which fight infections.) Abuse drugs (Injection of illegal dru…gs can put you at greater risk of getting infections that can affect your lungs.) Are age 65 or older Are smokers (smoke damages the air passages inside the lungs) Are very young children (whose immune systems are not fully developed) Have an impaired immune system due to chemotherapy, immunosuppressant drugs or illness Have been exposed to certain chemicals or pollutants Have certain diseases, such as HIV/AIDS, heart disease, emphysema or diabetes Have had the spleen removed Live in areas where exposure to types of fungus is greater (An example is valley fever, which is widespread throughout Southern California and the desert of the Southwest. This fungus does not affect everyone who is exposed to it, but a few develop severe pneumonia.) (MORE)

Five years. The Pneumococcal Vaccine prevents serious blood, brain,and lung infections from the streptococcus pneumoniae bacteria.This includes pneumonia and meningitis.
Pneumonia refers to inflammation of the lungs. "Pneumon" in Latin means lungs. The suffix "-ia" means pathological condition. In common English, pneumonia can be translated as "a pathological condition of the lungs." A more technically correct term would be pneumonitis, because the suffix "-itis"… means inflammation, but for some unknown reason it has long been called pneumonia. (MORE)
In some cases, yes, but in others, no... Anyone can get it, but I had pneumonia a few years ago and I haven't had it since. But, I've heard of other people who have had double pneumonia... So, I guess it just depends! I hope this answers your question.
Yes, there is one kind that protects against bacterial-caused pneumonia, however there is none for viral pneumonia.
Go to a doctor, ASAP, and get a antibiotic, rest etc. etc. it is VERY deadly
The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have issued guidelines for this situation and they do recommend this preventive measure in some demographic groups. It is often the secondary pneumonia that ultimately causes the most severe responses to this viral infection in certain segments… of the population and can be the complication that proves fatal in some. The following guidelines were published by CDC on June 9, 2009: There are two types of pneumonia vaccine recommended for use in two demographic groups: the 23-valent pneumococcal polysaccharide vaccine (PPSV23) and the a 7-valent pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (PCV7). These guidelines apply to the use of the PPSV23 vaccine. . It is recommended by the CDC that all adults aged 65 and older receive the PPSV23 Pneumonia vaccination. . In the following age groups the CDC recommend the PPSV23 Pneumonia vaccination only if certain medical conditions exist-- . Ages 2 through 64 only if one or more of these medical conditions exist: . Chronic cardiovascular disease (congestive heart failure and cardiomyopathies) . Chronic pulmonary disease including chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and emphysema . Diabetes mellitus . Alcoholism . Chronic liver disease, including cirrhosis . Cerebrospinal fluid leaks . Functional or anatomic asplenia including sickle cell disease and splenectomy . Immunocompromising conditions including HIV infection, leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease, multiple myeloma, generalized malignancy, chronic renal failure, nephrotic syndrome; those receiving immunosuppressive chemotherapy (including corticosteroids); and those who have received an organ or bone marrow transplant . 3. Adults ages 19 through 64 who: . Smoke cigarettes . Have Asthma . CDC recommendations regarding use of PCV7 Pneumonia vaccine: . "PCV7 is recommended for all children aged less than 5 years; national coverage among 19-35 month olds with 3 or more PCV7 doses is currently > 90% (National Immunization Survey, July 2007-June 2008)." "While maintaining this high coverage is important, expanding the use of PCV7 to people aged â¥ 5 years is not indicated because circulation of the 7 serotypes included in the vaccine has declined substantially and disease caused by these serotypes is now uncommon.".

Yes. There is a vaccine to prevent bacterial pneumococcal pneumonia (aka Streptococcus pneumoniae) and it is taken every five years to prevent that form of pneumonia.
The way any vaccine works - is by infecting the patient with an extremely weak dose of the disease they're being immunised for. The weakened virus is just strong enough to trigger the body's immune system into producing anti-bodies, without actually causing the patient to get the 'full-blown' d…isease. The anti-bodies produced by the inoculation stay in the bloodstream ready to fight the 'real' disease, should the patient contract it a t a later date. (MORE)

Most recommendations are that you should not take flu vaccinations if you have an active infection with fever or other serious symptoms. If no fever, and symptoms are mild, you could get the vaccination, but since each case is different, it would be best to speak to your doctor who is treating your… pneumonia. You can take the vaccination if you are taking antibiotics, there is no drug interaction problem, but if you still have active pneumonia, ask your doctor's advice about the flu shot. They may suggest that in your case the risk of getting the flu on top of pneumonia at the current stage of your lung infection, would be higher than the risk of an improper immune response to the vaccination and therefore will want you to take the vaccination now. (MORE)
Yes, if you are otherwise a candidate for the vaccine (there are age and health considerations as well as whether you have been vaccinated for it in the past), you should get vaccinated since pneumonia can be caused by different microbes, some types are viral, some types are bacterial, and even some… more rare types are fungal. The type of pneumonia you had may be different than the types that are protected by the currently available pneumococcal pneumonia vaccine (aka the "pneumonia vaccination"). Pneumococcal pneumonia is caused by pneumococcus bacteria. There are more than 80 different types of this bacteria that can cause pneumonia. The most common 23 of these types are included in the current vaccination. So even if you had one of the types of pneumonia that was caused by this bacteria, you can still be susceptible to the other types. (MORE)
O.A.Ps, Babies and people with low immune systems are all more prone to pneumonia. Its the same with Swine Flu.
Pneumonia can be a serious, even life threatening, illness but the vast majority of people do make a complete recovery.
Yes pneumonia can relapse. Here is what happened to me. I got a cold / flu. Was sick for maybe half a week. During this sickness i did not have a cough. I recovered from the original illness and then i slowly developed a cough. After two weeks i was coughing up blood and terrible tasting and smel…ling mucus. I go to the doc, get x ray and prescribed amoxicillan. Within days of taking amoxicillan i start to recover. I get to 100% about 10 days after my amoxicillan prescription ended i start getting a fever again. Promptly go back to the doctor and yes my pneumonia was coming back. Doc said amoxicillan was not strong enough and now i am on Biaxin / Clarithmocyian. (MORE)

Pneumonia is one of the dangerous diseases that cause even death to the young people and for old people; it takes to the chronically ill state, which is horrible. It is a type of disease is known as the inflammatory condition of the lungs. It would be very difficult for the persons to breath. Pneumo…nia is caused by the bacteria, fungi and viruses and there is a possibility of Pneumonia for persons, who are using parasites. Disease known as MRSA neumonia can be defined as a respiratory type of health issues that frequently follows a bout of the flu and may in short time become fatal for patient. Many medicines (antibiotics) are not useful to eliminate this very dangerous germ. (MORE)

Pneumonia is caused by either a virus or a bacteria. Pneumonia is not hereditary. However, some lung conditions are hereditary and can make a person susceptible to pneumonia.
Yes. The shot protects against Streptococcus pneumoniae (aka pneumococcus), which causes about half the cases of bacterial pneumonia. You can still get pneumonia from other bacteria, viruses, and other inflammatory conditions. In addition no vaccine is perfect and you can still get Strep pn pneum…onia. (MORE)
Any time you feel up to it. Just remember that if you have been on the pill the entire time while taking antibiotics they probably has not worked since antibiotics makes the pill useless. So you might have to start over and use something else for protection.

Macrolides, such as Azithromycin, Clarithromycin, and Erythromycin. Tetracyclines, such as Doxycycline. Fluoroquinolones, such as Gemifloxacin, Levofloxacin, and Moxifloxacin. Cephalosporins, such as Ceftriaxone, Cefotaxime, and Cefepime. Penicillins, such as Amoxicillin and Ampicillin. Vancomycin.
Different types of antibiotics depending on the strain of bacteria causing the pneumonia. Penicillin will usually work
Acute Pneumonia is an infection of the lung. Patients will present with fever, chills, cough productive of sputum, and shortness of breath. It can be a fatal disease especially in the elderly, very young, or immunocompromised. Most types of pneumonia are bacterial of origin, with pathogens like Stap…hlococcus Aureus, Streptococcal Pneumoniae, Klebsiella Pnuemoniae, with sputum production varying in color from green to currant jelly. There can be other causes of pneumonia such as viral and fungal causes which will not respond to antibiotics like the bacterial pneumonias do. If you think you have pneumonia then you should go to your doctor immediately. If indicated your doctor should perform a blood count, chemistry, and sputum analysis, and obtain imaging such as an xray. Most pneumonias are treated empirically without ever having knowledge of the specific pathogen but treatment is targeted at your risk factors for the different types of pneumonia. (MORE)

It depends on what is causing your sickness. If it is an infection, and/or you have a fever, then you should wait until the fever subsides and all acute symptoms of infection are gone.

Many vaccinations are given by injection in the muscle tissue of the arm. There are commonly local reactions that make your arm hurt when you move it or touch it for a few days after the shot. It may feel hot or look swollen and red in the place where the medicine was injected. The most effective wa…y to get rid of that soreness is to move the arm. Use it as you would normally even if uncomfortable at first. The sooner and more often you use it normally, the less pain you will have and the sooner the arm will be back to normal. I advise others to be sure, and I always make sure for myself, that the injection is put in my dominate arm (right side since I am right handed). That forces me to use the arm, and I almost never have soreness anymore. Other things you can do to make it feel better is to put warm moist compresses on the area (wet several washcloths in very warm- not hot- water, squeeze out the excess moisture, and hold against the sore place gently for at least 20 minutes at a time for several times a day, rinsing the cloths again with warm water if they cool off in the meantime.)day I usually have only needed to do that one or two days before all is right again, but some people have these symptoms for up to 5 days. If the local redness and pain gets worse and not better over time, contact your health care professional for advice, or ask your pharmacist about over the counter treatment you might try. (MORE)
No it isn't. The vaccine is considered safe and an extra dose would not cause problems with your immune response, in fact, it might make it work even better to prevent pneumonia, as it would act as an added "booster".
Yes, in fact, it is recommended for people age 65 and over by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The risk of serious illness or death from the pneumococcal bacteria that the vaccine helps to prevent in that age group is much higher than the risk of any problems with the vaccinatio…n (very low occurrence rates). See the CDC link in the related links section below for more about the vaccine and administration guidelines from the CDC. . (MORE)
Yes, in normal healthy adults both the flu vaccine and the pneumonia vaccine are often given at the same time, but in separate injections/administration.
Many people only need ONE shot to last them a lifetime. Some people may need a booster shot. It is best to discuss this with your physician!
