I have been experiencing periods of breathlessness for the last 6 months and my rhuematologist suspected pulmonary fibrosis. After having chest x rays, a high resolution C.T scan, overnight pulse oximetry, a cardiac stress test, ECG,and an echo cardiogram the chest and cardiac consultants have told me that all those tests are fine.
Just one problem of course I'm not fine, I have a constant dry cough, shortness of breath, dizzy spells and I am even more tired than usual.
Now have to wait 4 months for a cardiac perfusion test (that's on the urgent waiting list)
I actually thought that early intervention was critical!!!
