Just been reading about IPF sufferers who have experienced strange reactions to scents after diagnosis. As my appetite decreased over a period of time, my sensitivity to smell (mainly bad ones …. Kitchen sink, toilets) increased as well as an intolerance to loud noises.

I suffer badly from ‘the runny nose’. My GP prescribed ipratropium bromide and it worked. HOWEVER, my Consultant said to use it sparingly as it can destroy the nose lining. This frightened the life out of me so I only use it at times I have to spend time with others. It can be a huge aggravation.

Brain fog seems to affect recent activities I.e. taking something from one room to another, recalling a conversation from the night before, Tendring where I have left a cup in another room.
