Not necessarily : Feeling heavy can be a result of any of multiple conditions. It warrants further attention to the cardiopulmonary system, but pulmonary fibrosis is not necessarily the answer.
Dr. Fernando Torres
Pulmonology 27 years experience
It is possible: If you have been diagnosed with ipf, you may feel that your breathing is tight and is difficult at times to take deep breath. This is part of the disease.
