Pneumonia is a lung infection that causes a variety of symptoms. You may have common symptoms like a sore throat, sneezing, fatigue, fever, chills, shaking, headache, and muscle aches. In children, infants, the elderly, or if you are immune compromised, it's best to see your doctor if you think you have pneumonia. You may also have walking pneumonia, which just means it's a milder case of infection. Generally you feel well enough to go to work and do your normal daily activities. Read the entire Doctor's View
