Good morning, I have a question. Yesterday when I got an X-ray when I diagnosed pneumonia, but when I checked and read the X-rays (pictures) by a pulmonary specialist it was just gerd. How shall I act?

1 Answer:

Hi.

Pneumonia is a condition where there is infection in the lung tissue. Pneumonia in general is caused due to a bacterial infection that is transmitted through the air.

Who diagnosed you with pneumonia?

The x-rays of pneumonia can sometimes be non-specific. But if the pneumonia is very severe, the new pneumonia will give a characteristic picture on the X-ray. So that to determine the diagnosis requires a direct physical examination by a doctor, so that physical examination and X-rays can support each other. X-rays alone without a physical examination are not definitive.

If your pulmonologist diagnoses you as acid reflux / GERD, then it is possible. Because GERD can also cause chest pain that resembles the symptoms of pneumonia.

Therefore, to make sure you can ask directly to your pulmonary specialist, so that the doctor can provide the right explanation according to your situation. Or you can also consult another internal medicine specialist.

here is an article that you can read about GERD
