Hi all I hope you are well and enjoying this lovely weather.
I was diagnosed about 6 years ago with RA lung disease but in the past 3 years I have had a constant dry cough from November through to April and so far this year it has not gone away yet. My lung specialist is testing for all sorts of other stuff and I get results on 17th April. It has got so bad I cannot move, talk or eat without coughing to the point of vomiting and I am in the process of being medically retired from work. I have nodules and fluid on both lungs and glass granules on lower and upper lungs . At present I am free of nfection but get repeated chest infections. I have tried inhalers codeine cough linctus high dose steroids but nothing works. Has anyone else been through this and any tips on what helped you would be mch appreciated. I am currently on cimzia which is controlling RA in joints but not lungs as getting more nodules evey year. Thanks for reading.
