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.

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.
