I have had a chronic cough for 5 months. CT scan shows asbestosis scarring. I am being treated for the cough with steroids and bacterial infection. I am also using an inhaler twice daily.

I have tinging on an off in my arms fingers and through my head and ears. I am wondering if this could be from asbestosis.
