Pulmonary Hypertension

Pulmonary Hypertension

Can symptoms of PH come and go? Does PH make you feel like you can not take a deep breath?? Does PH cause all your PFT numbers to be low??

People with pulmonary hypertension often have symptoms that come and go. They report good days and bad days.
The first symptom of pulmonary hypertension is usually shortness of breath with everyday activities, such as climbing stairs. Fatigue, dizziness, and fainting spells also can be symptoms. Swelling in the ankles, abdomen or legs, bluish lips and skin, and chest pain may occur as strain on the heart increases.
