    Post Firefighters & Chronic Lung Diseases

    I would like to hear from firefighters that have been diagnosed with variuos chronic lung diseases. I am trying to find information for my own Doctors for a research project. I have a problem with the lymph nodes in my lungs called sarcoidosis. It causes a chronic cough, shortness and breath, and general weakness.
    If you aren't comfortable posting info here, feel free to e-mail me. Thanks...

    Hi Chaplain Jeff,

    I have been diagnosed with an 'interstitial pulmonary fibrosis' (and other chronic disorders) presumably from firefighting. Feel free to contact me for specifics.

    well, I've got asthma, but that was kinda already there. One of our captains has some respiratory problems, but I don't think he has a definite diagnosis.
