Symptoms of Pulmonary Fibrosis |

Shortness of breath, dry cough, gradual unintended weight loss, tiredness, aching joints and muscles, and clubbing of tips of the fingers or toes are some of the symptoms of pulmonary fibrosis.

Dr. Javier Perez-Fernandez, Critical Care and Pulmonary Medicine Physician with Baptist Hospital and West Kendall Baptist Hospital, says many of these symptoms can happen in many circumstances, so it is important to go and discuss these with your health care practitioner, your primary doctor, pulmonologist, and anyone who has knowledge in medicine.
