3rd time with pneumonia

Has anyone had this problem?

Two years ago I got upper/lower right side pneumonia. I was in the hospital for 8 days.

Three weeks ago, different pain, coughing out of control. Go ER and they tell me I have upper right side pneumonia. On antibiotics for 10 days, still a little cough.

Friday night, more pain and coughing, they do a CT and I have the start of lower left side and more upper right side.

I am on more medication. They want me to follow up with pulmoniary doctor which I will this week. ER says it really isn't normal to get this so often.

Anyone else have this going on or did at some point.

Re: 3rd time with pneumonia

I had 5 pnuemonias last year with 4 hospital admissions to ICU. I was fit and healthy 34 male up to Xmas 2009. Like you the doctors said it wasn't normal. They tested me for every lung problem and for any neuropathy. It has turned out that it is a immune system problem I have lupus/shrinking lung syndrome. Started treatment 5 weeks ago no change yet. Have had 2 pnuemonias already again this year to. Hope some of this might be a help to you.
