32, 185cm, 85kg, Male, Questran Lite/Infliximab infusion medication, non-smoker, had Asthma and currently have Crohn's disease. I get atrial fibrillation only when I have a fever.
I got a cough earlier this year and my doctor did a CT scan which showed a bit of thickening on the lung. ("Mild bilateral apical pleural and left lower lobe thickening").
I stopped socially smoking and doing illegal drugs (I was stupid, I know- occasionally was having a cigarette when doing cocaine) and hanging around people who smoke and the cough went away.
I recently however have had a bit of shortness of breath, but I am not sure if this is just my anxiety over the whole situation.
What are the causes for the lung thickening? I had taken some illegal drugs earlier this year (eg Cocaine), can these things have an impact? When you look online for thickening of lungs you mostly get asbestos results, although the doctor said this is unlikely.
