    Fluid in the lungs?

    crackling sounds followed by a few seconds of coughing... Oh yeah...

    I wonder if I have pneumonia?

    might be TB or typhoid.

    or just a big lugie
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    Come on. You're jumping to conclusions. It's probably just a large tumor dripping pus into the air sacs.

    I've heard TB is becoming trendy again...

    List of symptoms for pneumonia

    Cough, often producing mucus (sputum) from the lungs. Mucus may be rusty or green or tinged with blood. check
    Fever, which may be less common in older adults. check
    Shaking, "teeth-chattering" chills (one time only or many times). check
    Fast, often shallow, breathing and the feeling of being short of breath. check
    Chest wall pain that is often made worse by coughing or breathing in. check
    Fast heartbeat. check
    Feeling very tired (fatigue) or feeling very weak (malaise). check
    Nausea and vomiting. nausea check
    Diarrhea. No, thank god.

    The howling spiritual banshee wail of the posters in the other thread telling you to take your ass to the hospital coming out of your swollen alveoli?

    if you have some green mold growing around your food items, you can get penicillin from that.

    wouldn't you be partially covered by your EMO?

    I think it's just a higher co-pay.

    it would be worth looking into, but he will not go, no matter what we say.

    actually, one of the mistakes you can do while you have an unidentified sickness is to walk yourself into the hospital check in.
    it's best to call a hospital or 911 so they can pick you up and not contaminate other patients at the hospital.

    At this point, I don't want him to go to the hospital. Far more interesting to see what he can incubate.

    FYI - In college, I was in very good aerobic shape such that I didn't realize I had pneumonia at first. So by the time I finally went to the emergency room, I was totally laid out. Had to spend the next 4 weeks flat on my back.

    But really, don't go to the hospital.

    I did that a few months back too. The last straw was going for a ride with a doctor-friend of mine on a day off from work. I was pulling my 18-month-old in a trailer and we went for a longish (maybe 10 miles each way) ride. By the end of the ride I was coughing up a lung and felt like warmed-over garbage. She pulled out her stethoscope and listened to my chest. "You've got pneumonia!" she said.

    "Huh," I replied. "I knew I was a little sick."

    People, people, please. This is clearly a case of bubonic plague.

    And a little bit of leprosy.

    Don't worry. You don't die until 108. When it reaches 107, take some aspirin and a cold shower.

    ER....asap!

    If you want to get really quick service....tell them you were exposed to a level 5 infectious agent.
    Ebola would be a good one. Yersinia Pestis might raise a few eyebrows. Hantavirus will definitely get the attention of ER staff in your neck of the woods.
