dreamer1288:  are you eligible for COBRA benefits from your previous job? If you genuinely think you have pneumonia, you should see a doctor ASAP. If COBRA is not an option, try to find a clinic in your community that serves uninsured or indigent population, or a physician who is willing to offer discounted prices. The office visit and meds to treat pneumonia should not be prohibitively expensive. Untreated, it can become life threatening or result in a hospital stay that will be financially disastrous. No home remedy is going to cure pneumonia, and the sooner you get treatment, the less complicated/costly it will be. Sorry, I know this isn’t what you want to hear.

dreamer1288:  If it is pneumonia, the treatment depends on whether it is viral or bacterial.

Be careful with self diagnosing. You might want to do the Check  Your Symptoms section on the more general topic of Respiratory Problems, which wil give you a better idea if you need to see a doctor.
