For about three years now I've been having shortness of breath, which would come and go . When I started to suspect something more serious I went to the ER, they found nothing, but they didn't even do and xray and said I was fine .The symptoms subsided till recently, now they are bad, so I went to the ER again and this time they did a chest xray, found nothing and said I was fine, Btw, I have a heart condition and they ruled out CHF . I googled my symptoms and found IPF . I have not been diagnosed with IPF, as of now . Here are my symptoms, tell me what you think . Shortness of breath when doing anything, but sitting still, a persistent dry cough, fatigue when just walking short distances, wheezing at night, plus my breath shuts off when I doze off and am finding it hard to sleep. These symptoms are getting worse daily and , of course, I'm worried . I'm seeing my GP Monday, but just might call a rescue . They have a IPF wing in the hospital near me, so I'm going to go there . Okay, thanks !
