        Hi guys .

        Is there anything that the doctor could give me for a constant pain in my chest it’s every day ????. Had chest x-ray 7 months ago and got one today all looks the same . Does anyone else have chest pain and if so how have they managed with it ? Thanks

          Hi William. To answer your question I am curious as to what (if anything) worsens and/or lessens this pain? Where is the pain? Is it crushing vs sharp. How advanced is your IPF? So many causes of “chest pain” How old are you. So more info is needed. I have had IPF now for about 5-6 years (now 68) (on OFEV) and recently (2-3 weeks) noticed a chest tightness w/exertion. Could be angina (ischemia) so I’m heading to my cardiologist to rule out heart disease (stress test). There are many Other causes of chest pain: reflux (heartburn); pulled muscle in ribs (trauma/coughing); cardiac issues. I suggest you see someone in these fields (pulmonary; cardiac).
