September is Pulmonary Fibrosis Awareness Month. Pulmonary Fibrosis is a lung disease that transpires when lung tissue is damaged and scarred. The thickened tissue makes it difficult to breathe, and as the disease progresses, it makes breathing difficult for sufferers, causing them to be short of breath. Common symptoms are shortness of breath, fatigue, and aching muscles and joints. The seriousness of symptoms and course of pulmonary Fibrosis can vary significantly from person to person. Some become sick very quickly, while others develop worsening symptoms over many months or years.
Lung damage caused by Pulmonary Fibrosis is permanent. However, some therapies and medications can help ease symptoms and improve life quality. A lung transplant might be a suitable treatment for some.
