Dear Penny
You may have inflammation of the lung pleura as a complication of the pneumonia, but if you are short of breath and the pain gets worse, rather see your doctor for a follow up. You could try taking an anti-inflammatory medication like Neurofen if you are not allergic to it or have any other contra-indications.
