Walking pneumonia

HENRICO, VA (WWBT) -

Dr. Patrick Woodward is treating walking pneumonia.

If you're not in bed with a high fever and chills and aches, you can find your energy and feel short of breath with a hacking cough.

Many people think they may just have a bad cold or are just worn out. In reality, they may have an infection with an infectious agent called mycoplasma.  

Main symptoms are dry cough, low fever, fatigue and aches lasting more than a few days.
