 I am new to the site, could someone help. Had rheumatoid arthritis for 12 years.  Was taking Rutuxin doing pretty good.In june of the year I couldn't breath good. I was inthe hospital 6 weeks.  Basicly I was sent home to die.  They say I have pulmonary fibrosis, caused by RA or rutixin. Has anyone been diagnoised with this without a bx,  thank

Hi cattail,
Im so sorry to hear this, Ive not heard of RA causing this and Im not aware of the drug you mentioned as Ive never needed to take it. I hope someone comes along and can help you with answers. In the meantime, have you googled the med and RA? Or tried one of the medical sites? Was there no further information from the hospital other than what you stated? Im sorry I just find this incredibly shocking and am so sorry for you.
Please keep us posted.

Oh dear..I'm so sorry to hear this...I don't know anyone who has this, however I also hope that you find some answers. 
 
Jo...Yes, as shocking as it is, it can be caused by RA as well as Lupus and also medications such as Methotrexate can also play a role in the Pulmonary Fibrosis sad

THANK YOU, FOR ANSWERING. I COULD HANDLE THIS IF IT WAS NOT FATAL. THAT'S THE HARED PART.
