Symptoms of IPF
If you have idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF), the first symptom you might notice is getting out of breath when you’re exerting yourself, such as climbing stairs.
But you might feel constantly short of breath, and not just when you’re moving about.
If you feel breathless, don’t ignore it - see your doctor.
A cough that doesn’t go away and feeling very tired all the time are two other symptoms of IPF.
Another distinctive sign affects your fingers and toes, and is called clubbing.
