    • Welcome to the PF forums Brenda – thanks for joining us!

      • Thanks Charlene. I was diagnosed with IPF 2 yrs ago this month. Still on no medication. Doing okay but still not sure what to expect. Really have lots of anxiety. Not sure if anxiety makes it a little harder to breathe or at times just get out of breath a little. Especially playing golf any going uphill. Not scheduled to see pulmonologist again until April of 2022. Still trying to figure this all out. Have read so many of your forums. Very informative.

        • Hi Brenda,

          Thanks for sharing some of your diagnostic experience with us, and glad to hear you are doing okay and aren’t having to deal with the medication side effects; those can be tough. Anxiety certainly can exacerbate symptoms of IPF, so its important to develop some strategies to reduce the anxiety when you can… I know, way easier said than done! Aug 2022? That seems like an awfully long time away. Can you get another doctor that might be able to see you with less of a wait? Really glad to hear the forums are helpful to you. Please don’t hesitate to connect at any time!
