if no one in my family has ever been diagnosed with Cystic fibrosis should I be worrying about it? cuz I had some chest discomfort today and short of breath?
Hello, cystic fibrosis is a very serious disease that can be inherited. If you had it, you would have symptoms for (and from) a long time. If you had symptoms "today", then this is so very much against cystic fibrosis, that you shouldn't worry about it. Was there any family member with cystic fibrosis? If yes, then perhaps couples that want to have children should be tested for it. Kind Regards!
