The symptoms of my interstitial lung disease are dry cough, weird metallic taste in the back of throat, burning in chest and getting completely winded just walking through a department store. I was panting trying to get to my car.

My symptoms of interstitial lung disease were dry ongoing cough, fatigue, and over approximately a year's time a worsening of shortness of breath until I ended up in the emergency room 3 days before my scheduled lung biopsy.
