The intensity of the symptoms depends on which type of aspergillosis you have developed, although many of the symptoms are similar within each type. In the early stages of pulmonary aspergillosis, you may not experience any symptoms at all, but as the disease progresses, you may begin to experience wheezing, fever, chest pain, difficulty breathing, or coughing that brings up mucus or blood. The fibers of the fungus may also form into a lump by combining with white blood cells and blood clots, which is known as a fungus ball.
With invasive aspergillosis, symptoms may include fever, chills, shortness of breath, kidney or liver failure, bloody cough, internal bleeding in the lungs, and shock. Symptoms of allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis (ABPA) include wheezing or worsening of asthma, coughing that brings up mucus or blood, fever, increased mucus secretions, and decreased ability to perform physical activity.
