Does Testing Positive For Covid 19 Cause Pah In Some People

Does Testing Positive For Covid 19 Cause Pah In Some People

I tested positive for covid in early February, I was never hospitalized. About two weeks after noticed shortness of breath and difficulty with everyday tasks. After a ton of tests I've been diagnosed with pah. Before covid I never had breathing issues. My pulminary doctor is telling me it is not covid related???

i don't believe it was not related. if you have a lung disease and get vaccine and have a copd or lung disease it is related

I've had so many tests done. Most recent was some kind of dye injected. I'm not a person who goes to the dr. Often, all of this has been totally overwhelming and difficult to understand. I'm also not very organized. Ty for your feedback.

PH can hit anyone, anytime for no reason at all. It is then called ideopathic PH. Has anyone done a right heart cath on you? That is the gold standard for diagnosing PH. Get one done

Not so sure I would trust that either. Doesn't change things, tho, I guess. Hugs.
