Article Excerpts About Symptoms of Pneumococcal pneumonia:

Pneumococcal pneumonia may begin suddenly, with a severe shaking chill usually followed by

  • High fever
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath
  • Rapid breathing
  • Chest pains
There may be other symptoms as well.
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Headache
  • Tiredness
  • Muscle aches
In an otherwise healthy adult, pneumococcal pneumonia usually involves one or more parts of the lungs, known as lobes. Thus, it is sometimes called lobar pneumonia. The remainder of the respiratory system is comparatively not affected. In contrast, infants, young children, and elderly people more commonly develop a relatively mild infection in other parts of the lungs, such as around the air vessels (bronchi) causing bronchopneumonia.
