    There are two types of coal sickness- simple and complicated. With simple coal sickness, the patient has limited lung capacity. In the complicated form of coal sickness, fibrous tissue masses form in the lungs. Symptoms include coughing, chest pain, and breathing problems.

    Coal sickness, also called miner’s lung disease, happens when coal dust irritates the tissues in the lung. As mentioned by another respondent, symptoms include shortness of breath, a chronic cough, and chest pain. If left untreated or if continued exposure to coal dust occurs, it can lead to pneumoconiosis, emphysema, and chronic bronchitis, which have complications such as heart failure and pulmonary tuberculosis, and can result in more severe coughing and respiratory issues.
