I am 35 years of age and have been diagnosed with UIP(July 2013).My medical tests revealed:
1)CECT CHEST AND HRCT CHEST-CT findings reveal interlobular septal thickening with scattered areas of honey combing seen in both the lung fields-UIP.Traction bronchiectasis seen on the right side.Small thin walled bullae seen in both the lungs.Mediastinal lymph nodes seen.
2) PFT COMPLETE-FVL:73%,DLCO(ml/min/mmHg) : 30
3) SIX MINUTE WALK TEST: %SpO2 MAX :96 ,MIN: 88
I earlier had milirial TB & pneumothorax rt lung in 2003. Now dr is saying it could have been UIP at that point of time itself ie, MTB was misdiagnosed.
1) Breathlessness while climbing stair case.
2) Clubbing of nails of foot.
3)Mild chest pain on left side.
Can anybody throw more light on UIP symptoms?
