Pain when breathing
bornwithhalo posted:
I have been walking in the cold morning, stupid I know, and my asthma hasn't been flaring but my lungs just hurt. Right now I am recovering from a cold and my lungs are hurting worse then either when I breathe in. Should I be worried about pneumonia?
biancalthompson responded:
Yellowish-green phlegm, persistent cough and a temperature above 101 is usually something to worry about. I am not a doctor, just have gone through a few bouts of pneumonia.

talk to your doctor. some people do not have the regular symptons. I had pneumonia without any symptons except for the constant coughing. they did an x-ray and found I had pneumonia. stop walking in the cold. too cold or too hot is bad for asthma. GOD BLESS
