  • Keeping fingers crossed for your CT scan results Judith.

    Idiopathic means 'unknown cause' bronchitis is under the banner of COPD

    Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis is something else (not COPD) .

    Its probably best for you to wait for results of the CT Scan for a confirmed diagnosis.

    Hope you are soon feeling much better, just rest when you need to until you get a diagnosies and the appropriate medicine to treat the problem. Keep warm and take good care.

    Best wishes BC
