Interstitial lung disease and Scleroderma

Hi Jennuwhine,


As it happens, you don't need to have lung problems in order to have shortness of breath. Many things can cause it, including heart problems, pulmonary hypertension, being overweight or out of shape, asthma, hyperventilation, and even anxiety.


Noting the exact circumstances each time it occurs can help your doctor identify the cause (s) for you. Please let us know how things are going for you, and what you find out in regard to this.

Warm Hugs,


Shelley Ensz

The most important thing in the world to know about scleroderma is sclero.org.
