In brief: WORRY

NEVER helped ANYONE! SO NOT TO WORRY!
Increased interstitial markings bilaterally "MAY" reflect in PAST inflammation or irritation (for example a CHEMICAL exposure) or in rare cases be ASSOCIATED with some chronic disorders.
,, IN SHORT this should be evaluated with special imaging/ blood tests..FOLLOW your Health Provider's suggestion(s) and REMEMBER
NOT TO WORRY!
Hope this helps
