Does this sound Like pneumonia or a Stomach Virus?
I had pneumonia when I was a baby, when i was about 6, and last year. I almost died everytime, i was on life support for a few days

And now im getting sick and worried it might be pneumonia?

My first symptom was that sick feeling in your stomach, the one that makes you think “if I could just throw up it’d feel better” Then i went to school and started throwing up and went home, now i have a fever I throw up everything i eat, I have Diahrea, Mild coughing. Dizzy whenever I stand and hot flashes.

Any ideas?

pneumococcus virus is attacking you, go to an expert physician, and he can make you healthy

As a pneumococcus infected person you should

1. Never allow fever to stay more than 4 days
2. Never be too chilly
3. Take complete bed rest during illness
4. Follow strict diet for preventing pneumonia

Pneumonia is a lung disease. With pneumonia you will have a severe productive cough and difficulty breathing, combined with a high fever and chills.

It sounds unlikely that you have pneumonia. The dizziness and hot flashes are likely caused by dehydration; you should make sure you’re drinking plenty of fluids.

wheezing sounds like air trying to get through a small passageway. That’s basically what happens in asthma, the airways decreases in diameter causing the wheezing, and the difficulty in breathing. The crackling sound you here must be the phlegm. Mucus production also happens in asthma, although not all who has this means they already have asthma, this could happen in a simple case of cold.

do you or your husband have family history of asthma or allergies? when does you child’s symptoms appear? what are the symptoms? usually, asthma is triggered when there are changes in weather, smoke or any stong fume inhalation, strenous activity, a respiratory infection, etc.

If you are listening very closely and you hear a crackling kind of sound, it could be due to atalectasis. That is the closure of the alvioli (air sacs) in your lungs. When you take a deep breath in, the air sacs pop back open, making this crackling kind of sound. The reason why these sacs are closed is most likely due to restricted airways which has decreased the amount of air that can reach the alvioli. The Albuterol inhaler you received helps to open the airway back up. When the alvioli do not get enough air, they start to colapse. So if you hear the crackling, your toddler still needs to be treated for his condition. I think you may want to get a second opinion very soon. Don’t make your son feel uncomfortable any longer than he has to. Good luck!
