Walking Pneumonia: Symptoms, Causes, And How To Treat This Condition
December 27, 2017
Walking pneumonia sounds a title of a horror movie. But it is an informal term for pneumonia that isn’t severe enough to require bed rest. A person who gets walking pneumonia typically doesn’t have to stay in a hospital. You may have walking pneumonia but do not even know about it.
Your doctor may call it “atypical pneumonia” because it has atypical symptoms. In general, this type of pneumonia is caused by a lung infection.
