I have been on Lyrica 50 mg for years. I was diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis last year. The neuropathy in my feet has gotten worse and my Doctor upped my Lyrica to 150 mg. Instantaneously I had worse breathing issues. Lyrica was the only thing I could think of because I started the higher dose when the breathing started. IF I stop taking Lyrica will my breathing be netter.
I just found out I now have Pulmonary fibrosis after finishing the Chemo treatment known as FOLFOX (Oxaliplatin + Flourouracil). I am looking for any information about what is ahead for me. Any help is greatly appreciated.

I have IPF and I'm being evaluated at Temple University Hospital for a lung transplant. I'm a 69-year old male. Diagnosed a year ago when i also went on supplemental oxygen and the drug OFEV. I experienced syncope events starting the first month after diagnosis and start of O2 & OFEV. Transplant team won't list me until they know what's causing syncope. Any thoughts or similar experience?
