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

even doctors are classing ipf as copd it is not under the copd umbrella ipf is a totally different disease if you have not been a smoker that's maybe why he is saying idiopathic bronchitis although I have never heard of it good luck with scan
