After feeling ill and going to the doctor with flu like symptoms last week, I went back for another visit this past Tuesday (exactly one week later) because I suddenly felt worse after I thought I had improved over the weekend. Felt fine fri/sat/sun, than woke up Monday with a terrible, dry raspy cough, and by the time I got home from work I had a fever of 102. The next day I went to the doctor and was diagnosed with pneumonia, given an antibiotic and told to stay home until the fever went away. Today is the first day of no fever, but I still feel like crap..still have the cough, still feel run down, and can still here a "crackling" or "wheezing" sound in my chest when I exhale, especially while laying down. Who here has had pneumonia, and what was your recovery period?
