    Smile HAD pneumonia but chest is still feeling heavy

    Hi everyone,

    I had finished up my meds for pneumonia a week ago but my chest is still feeling so heavy and I am moderately weak...sometimes enough to feel very faint. Is it normal to feel this way after a week of finishing meds?

    Sunday, I went to church and almost passed out. I had every symptom of angina. I went straight to the hospital and cleared up the heart attack question and any other problems. I had lots of tests and am otherwise fine. I did not have a heart attack. Thank the Lord! I guess I am that weak that even going to church was too much for me. So the question is, "Do others have these same symptoms from having had pneumonia?" My heart was palpitating alot but is fine now. I am under family stress unfortunately. That MUST be an issue towards my health. But I was going numb to my toes and finger tips, sweaty, clamy hands. It really seemed like I was having a heart attack but I wasn't. Those are severe symptoms! I got that weak! How about any of you? Has this ever happened to you?
