Pneumonia with no congestion???
I haven't been able to find an answer on this. With my pneumonia I had in Feb I didn't even have a runny nose. No congestion, no cough, not even a tiny little cold.
I woke up one morning and felt nauseous. Laid on the couch and slept. I think I was awake for about 1 1/2 hr all day then went back to bed slept all night. Woke up the next day and was completely out of it. I had a fever of 104, couldn't stay awake and had no idea what was going on. The house could have burned around me and I wouldn't have known. That was the day I was hospitalized. I had no other symptoms at all. The 3rd day of being hospitalized when I woke up and complained of chest pain from the center of my chest radiating down my right arm and side. The nurses were like "hm, that's strange" and it wasn't even looked at.
When I was sent home I couldn't take a deep breath. I could only take shallow ones as my lungs wouldn't let me. It's like they stopped working and the pain was horrible when I tried to get a bigger breath. Forget about sneezing. I just plain couldnt. My lungs would stop me from taking a deep breath. It took a good 2 weeks to get back to normal. So has anyone had pneumonia withough actually being "sick"???
