Fatigue Shortness Of Breath And Weight Gain With PH

Fatigue Shortness Of Breath And Weight Gain With PH

Since being diagnosed with PH a little over a year ago I find myself constantly tired and almost always short of breath, even when doing simple things like tying my shoes, climbing stairs getting out of a chair short walks among other things. Sometimes I even feel short of breath when just sitting at my office? Once I started using my CPAP machine, it seemed to help, but now that I've been using it for almost a year, it doesn't seem to be making much of a difference anymore? I'm 66 and was… read more

Has Anyone Had A RHC W/exercise?

Has Anyone Had A RHC W/exercise?

I’m scheduled for this Thursday my main problem is with walking, showering, etc. At rest I’m fine, my o2 does really drop when sleeping but as long as I use my oxygen it’s stable.
They just mentioned riding a bike, and I’m wondering if that will be enough to get a good idea of what happens when I walk? The last time I had a 6 minute walk test I didn’t make it far at all w/o oxygen.
