Any Movement

Any Movement

Does anyone else experience just rolling over in bed and heart rate goes up? Or even movement while sitting? That's why its hard for me to sleep. It makes me very angry that they refuse to do a RHC when I have some of these symptoms.

Yes, everyday. I have been teaching my self meditation, to slow my heart rate and not to get so angry. I am so frustrated I can't see straight.
So I don't blow a major blood vein... I close my eyes and try and be positive, positive, positive. But it is SO hard.

Tb think of pulmonary hypertension as the same as high blood pressure except it is in your arteries in your lungs.

An echo can tell them if there is pressure in your arteries. If there is no pressure, then there is no pulmonary hypertension.

I wouldn’t be so anxious to get a Cardiac Cath. They are not fun. They are helpful in getting a clearer picture of PH. If you don’t have PH, then no need for Cath. Does that make sense?

Sometimes I do but there are times when I take slow baby steps and I literally gasped for breath then the next day I walk without breathing issues!! I find this to be strange.

Some days are slow and breathing is short I just stop where I'm standing and do a few inhale and exhale. I have a fan that if need more air to help me breath we are best of friends.

My heart rate is good 💜 I do what I can to try not to stress.its not always easy my love 🫂 goes out to everyone and my prayers are for us to gather strength. Every day is one day at a time🤍.

You might need a right-heart cath to diagnose or manage the following conditions:
° Heart failure. A condition in which your heart muscle has become so weak, it can't pump blood efficiently. ...
° Shock. ...
° Congenital heart disease. ...
° Heart valve disease. ...
° Cardiomyopathy. ...
° Pulmonary hypertension.
°Heart transplant.
You have to shown something on other cardiac test before the Dr will recommend a Cardic Catheterization. The insurance companies have guidelines in place stating the reason a patient can have a Cardiac Cath. You have to be careful because some Dr will order the test and you will be fully charge.
You can also call your insurance and ask for coverage for any test.
