Breathlessness on exertion since 2 yrs till now many times xray pft echo done normal m worrying abt pulmonary fibrosis do I need more test if pft norm

Dyspnea: PFT can suggest but not prove "restriction" which is a characteristic of pulmonary fibrosis. Suggestive PFTs are followed up with lung volume studies and measurement of the diffusing capacity of carbon monoxide (DLCO) which demonstrates the degree of impairment.

I have silent reflux and due to that swollen vocal cords I have breathlessness on exertion all heart and lung test are normal can LPR cause breathless?

I have silent reflux and due to that swollen vocal cords I have breathlessness on exertion all heart and lung test are normal can LPR cause breathless?

Check for VCD: LPR: laryngeal pharyngeal reflux - when gastric contents rise up into the throat, beyond just usual heartburn (GERD).

Check inspiratory flows; look for cut-offs in airflow when breathing in. ...Read more
