I went back to my dr and was told I’ve developed pneumonia and my blood pressure is 139/91 my temp is 40.1 Celsius my O2 stat’s were 90% on air and my heart rate was 140 bpm.
They said they didn’t have any drs that could see me and I can’t see one till Tuesday but I’m worried about waiting that long as I feel very unwell.

Your symptoms and manifestations do point that you need investigations like chest x-ray and blood work.

Upper respiratory tract infections can cause pneumonia and can be bacterial infection.

You may consider going to hospital emergency room / accident and emergency (A&E).

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
