    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    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?

    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
