Just a heads-up to everyone- If you have gotten or will get an endoscopy done, make sure you read the possible side effects. I recently had an endoscopy done the other day and went to the ER within 24-48 hours afterwards to find out that I have pneumonia which can be one of the side effects. Make sure to go to the ER right away if you experience any chest pain, shortness of breath, coughing, vomiting, etc. pneumonia can turn into sepsis if not treated right away which is very serious because it gets in your bloodstream and you could possibly be admitted to the hospital like I am right now also being checked for sepsis. I hope you all have a better experience with your endoscopy than I did.

      The ER doc said I had them at the same time, so I really don't know which one I got first (my guess would be the pneumonia). But I haven't had either since *knock on wood* haha thanks!

      Appreciate the warning. Luckily, my endoscopy went on w/o a hitch when I had it done years ago. I really hope you're alright & that you have a speedy recovery! The only time I ever had pneumonia, I had bronchitis with it & I was miserable /: my lungs have never been the same

        @Kittypop Thanks and that sounds horrible! Did you get bronchitis before you got pneumonia? I hope things get better for you too!
