Walking Pneumonia Test
What is a Walking Pneumonia Test called?
Walking Pneumonia is the common name for an infection caused by the bacteria Mycoplasma Pneumoniae. M. Pneumoniae causes infections of the respiratory system which are typically milder than other forms of pneumonia. Blood testing for antibodies to the bacteria can help identify walking pneumonia as well as differentiate it from other infections that cause similar symptoms. A Mycoplasma Pneumonia Antibody Blood Test looks for both IgM and IgG antibodies. Measuring both antibody types can be helpful in determining if a person has an acute or chronic infection.
What are the symptoms of Walking Pneumonia?
Walking Pneumonia symptoms are typically similar to other common ailments such as a cold. Most people will display symptoms that include sore throat, fever, chills, cough, chest pain, headache, and fatigue. These symptoms can develop within 2-4 weeks after the initial infection.
How quick are the test results for a Walking Pneumonia test?
Once your testing order is placed, you can go to the lab to have your specimen collected the same day or at your earliest convenience. Test results for a Mycoplasma Pneumonia Antibody Test typically take 3-6 business days to complete. Once your results are ready you'll be notified by email so you can log in to your private online account to view them. Request A Test representatives are available to help you read and understand your test results.
