Can you have pneumonia with 98% oxygen saturation?

Sorry one more question from me.

What is the normal SpO2 level during sleep?

I'm asking because these days I keep waking up every hour or two breathing faster and heavier than usual. Couple of times I woke up and my heart was beating really fast. I'm concerned that there is something wrong with my lungs that causing me to not breathe properly during sleep.

So if/when I wake up again tonight and feel like I'm breathing fast, I'll check my SpO2 and make sure it's within range.

Hi @mkqq, I found an article that details a study on normal oxyhemoglobin saturation during sleep – https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/8989066. They found that for healthy patients, the median saturation was 96.5% +/- 1.5%.

I hope that the study gives you some relief, and that you are continuing to feel better. Do you still feel like your body is having more energy as the days go by, and have you been breathing better for the past few days?
