I was diagnosed with PF in August this year from a chest x-ray ! is this possible ? I'm 58 and it was a shock having been a health and fitness freak most of my life, luckily so far I'm not breathless, except if I try to ride up hill on my bike but my recovery is ok, I'm sure this will change, but I can not stop the cough which is worse at present having just had a cold and chest infection. The cough is driving me nuts. My GP doesn't seem concerned I have asked for a consultant referral but that is not happening because apparently I'm not poorly enough to warrant this. Frustrated and annoyed I spoke to British Lung Foundation who told me its my right and NICE guide lines state this!!! where oh where do I go from here help advise muchly appreciated thank you
