Nonspecific interstitial thickening with groundglass opacities
I have nsip with groundglass also. It is important to find a pulmonologist. This way you could make sure things are not progressing. Also check out some pulmonary rehab breathing exercises, eat healthy, and keep moving. Best.

@fracturedd-Hello again- NSIP, Nonspecific interstitial pneumonia (NSIP) is a rare disorder that affects the tissue that surrounds and separates the tiny air sacs of the lungs. These air sacs, called the alveoli, are where the exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide takes place between the lungs and the bloodstream. I'm so glad that you found a pulmonologist to diagnose your shortness of breath. What have you done to stop the shortness of breath? Are you one medications?
@cloe001,@bumble81 – Please read this about ground glass : Ground-glass opacity (GGO) is a radiological finding in computed tomography (CT) consisting of a hazy opacity that does not obscure the underlying bronchial structures or pulmonary vessels (1). Pure GGOs are those with no solid components, whereas part-solid GGOs contain both GGO and a solid component. You can look up the different kinds. It's so important that you research your terms and diseases so that you get a full understanding of what you have.Knowledge is power and if you aren't sure of something please don't pass it on.
