My brief history is, I have lupus, vasculitus, sorgrens, aps and others. I was prescribed methotrexate for lupus, and it has been stopped due to lung and liver side effects. The drug made me cough violently for the 18 months I was on it, but Drs ignored my complaints about it. When they finally listened and stopped the drug, it was panic stations, with ct scans, and x rays. They diagnosed lung damage to the top and bottom of my lungs caused by lupus and the methotrexate. They gave me a salbutamol pump which makes me cough so I don't use it. Sent for PFT, and they now deny their diagnosis from ct scans. Because I used to smoke, they are saying its emphysema. They don't want to see me anymore, and the cough went, once the drug was out of my system. When I have a lupus flare, my lungs will then be tight. Should I worry, I don't get wheezy or chesty when well. Am always reading posts on this site, and think you are all such a happy bunch. I never contribute as I feel a fake, compared to your problems.
