My Ra Affects My Lungs Who Else Has This Issue?

I have a rare disease called Feltys Syndrom.. It pairs with severe RA.. My body attacks my spleen, my white blood cells (my neutrophils) along with every single joint, spine, skull, rib cage, and my tendons.. As well as a rheumatologist, I have a hemotaligist. I recieve bone marrow treatments twice a week, for 6 weeks, once or twice a year, to avoid dying of sepsis.. I was kinda an OCD personality and germ phobe before this diagnosis.. Thus, I got this.. choo choo!

I have NSIP ( non specific interstitial lung disease). My Pulmonologist was trying find to cause until RA symptoms showed up.
So I am being treated for both.

I have been diagnosed with mild COPD. I’ve never smoked a day in my life and was wondering if it could be a result of my RA.
