Does anyone else have chest pain with their PH?

I have chest pain, mostly on the left side, and shortness of breath with slight movement. Sometimes it goes away in a few minutes but it usually stays several hours. Sometimes I wake up with it. Does anyone else experience this? If so, how do you manage it?
