This I'm sure of could be one of two things nothing to do with pneuamonia thankfully its either gallstones pain or pancreas both which should be checked out with the pancreas one being the most serious of the two the symptoms your husband has are real signs of one of these two symptoms so I would get a visit with the doc as epigastric pain is a real nuisance I've experienced it myself first hand
My Husband Had Pneumonia In October But Has Since Having Pain In His Right Ribs Which Moves Around To His Shoulder Blades, Pain Killers Don'T Take It Away Completely, What Is It Please?
Pneumonia can cause chest pain, rapid or shallow breathing, shortness of breath, fever, cough, fatigue, confusion, sweating, headache, and loss of appetite. You have not indicated which pneumonia your husband was having? Infectious pneumonia or non infectious pneumonia? It is possible that your husband is having aspiration pneumonia which is still not treated and having chest pain. But chest pain can also be due to indigestion, dyspepsia, and angina. It is also possible that your husband has some pus due to empyema which is complication of pneumonia. So, don't rely on pain killers and advices on the net, visit a doctor for proper diagnosis and treatment.
