Last year diagnosed with sjogrens ,GERD (Barretts) and chest CT scan showed tiny lesions and apical tips fibrosis.. Get pains and heaviness in chest sometimes..put it down to GERD.I was also told to get follow up chest scan and see pulomonologist....a year later had my follow up.....did a pulmonary function test (spirometry) Diagnosis is moderate restriction of lungs (not expanding fully on breathing in) Been told to get Lung Volume test.
My question : Can GERD or sjogrens cause this condition . i read some auto immune diseases like sarcoidosis causes this but no mention of sjogrens or GERD.
Never been a smoker (however father and brother were chainsmokers and smoked in the house ...back in day when huge ignorance about effects of secondary smoke.) Dont have asthma.
Waiting for appointment for lung volume test
Any ideas anyone??
