Fred Astaire: 'He died in my arms' Star's final moments before dying of pneumonia

Asthma + Lung UK adds that some people get a “sharp pain in their chest when they breathe in and out”.

This may be because the thin lining between the lung and rib cage, called the pleura, is infected and inflamed. This inflammation, called pleurisy, stops your lungs moving smoothly as you breathe.

These symptoms are often similar to other chest infections such as bronchitis or COPD flare-ups, so in any case it is important that individuals who have typical symptoms of pneumonia seek medical attention.

Although pneumonia can affect people of any age, it is more common, and can be more serious, in certain groups of people, such as the very young or the elderly. It is these individuals who are more likely to need hospital treatment.
