The Most Common Pulmonary Fibrosis Symptoms

Posted by

If you are struggling with lung problems, you may be wondering what is causing the trouble. Pulmonary fibrosis is the scarring of lung tissue that can cause a whole host of symptoms. Pulmonary fibrosis can manifest itself very differently from patient to patient. In some cases it is fast moving and causes severe problems quickly. In other cases the disease progresses slowly. Symptoms set on subtly and develop slowly, over time.

Symptoms

Here are some of the most common symptoms that those who suffer from Pulmonary fibrosis face:

WebMD sites shortness of breath as one of the first signs of pulmonary fibrosis. This shortness of breath becomes progressively worse. It can also be accentuated by exercise and a decreasing tolerance for vigorous physical movement.

A persistent dry cough can also indicate pulmonary fibrosis.

Mayo Clinic mentions other symptoms that may be difficult to link with pulmonary fibrosis. These include fatigue, sudden weight loss and pain in joints or muscles.

As you can tell from the list of symptoms, pulmonary fibrosis can be difficult to diagnose. These symptoms can also be related to a host of other diseases and there is no key symptom that points directly to the scarring of lung tissue.

Diagnosis

Once you visit a doctor, they may listen for a crackling noise in your chest. They can also take a chest X-ray or a CAT scan. These images may or may not show abnormalities, they can be inconclusive. A doctor can also perform various lung function tests to see if your lungs are struggling with normal activity. While all of these tests can point to a pulmonary fibrosis diagnosis, none of them are conclusive. The only way to know for sure that you are suffering from pulmonary fibrosis is an invasive biopsy. Samples of lung tissue must be taken during an open chest operation that requires general anesthesia. Some doctors may not feel it is essential to perform this operation in order to treat pulmonary fibrosis.

Clinical Treatments

Discovering you are suffering from pulmonary fibrosis can feel bleak and hopeless. There is no clinical cure for the disease and it will continue to progress. Doctors offer various treatments to control symptoms and slow progress. However, using some of these treatments long term can be detrimental to your health in other ways.

Corticosteriods, like Prednisone, are used to suppress the immune system and attempt to prevent further development of scar tissue. However long term use of drugs like Prednisone can lead to many side effects. Oxygen therapy is also commonly used to help improve quality of life and make everyday tasks easier.
