What questions should I ask my doctor? I have not had a diagnosis of PH yet.

Hi, I was just diagnosed a couple weeks ago. What symptoms are you having? I was diagnosed with "asthma," but was not responding well to asthma meds for years. Your will have to do a right heart Cath to diagnose you. I had an abnormal stress test, and my doctor thought I had coronary artery disease. He did a right and left heart Cath. He thinks my PH is from pulmonary causes. You will have to work with your doctor also, to determine the cause of your PH. Each type has different treatment plans. Good luck in getting your diagnosis and treatment. It has been a very long road for me. They suspected PH 5 years ago, but my heart cath at that time was normal. But I continued to have PH symptoms. I am blessed that I was diagnosed in the moderate stage, with pressure of 35 to 40 in the pulmonary artery and no heart failure. Many people are not diagnosed until they are in severe stage, with right heart failure. Wish you all the best. Keep us posted 💜💜💜💜💜💜
