Please describe your pneumonia symptoms.

Comment from: lintice, 25-34 Female (Patient) Published: December 27

I had pneumonia a few years ago. I am 32 years old, but over the past couple of days I've had a chesty cough and have been bringing up a lot of phlegm. I work nightshift at a hotel, and when I came home at 9am I went straight to my bed. I got up at 4.30pm and my chest has been really sore with a sharp pain when I breathe.
