Is anyone aware if Covid has affected your PH and made it worse?
I had Covid last July, and seemed to be worse after it.
I just tested positive last night, but virtually have no symptoms. The pharmacist said I probably have a mild case, and just rest, and take tylenol.
Hi Sandy, I started therapy in Dec. It helps but I come home exhausted each day also.
What level of exhaustion/fatigue is “normal” for PH sufferers? I was diagnosed a year ago and was put on a remodulin pump. I improved dramatically when it comes to being out of breath but I struggle with extreme fatigue and exhaustion. I am wondering if this is normal for those of us with PH or if something else is to blame?

I've been severly fatigued for months. I have to take napes too. I have trouble falling asleep too.

It’s Lori again. I forgot to say I’m 74, have PH, and arthritis. And nerve pain in my legs after knee replacements both legs.
Have you tried Lyrica for your nerve pain? It is pretty effective for nerve pain.
Sleep Dr wants me to get off the medicine I've been using for about 25 years. Carbidopa//Levo . (Because of side effects) He rx'd Neupro patches. Tier 4, $95. Per month. I advise him patch is working but too much $$ . He wants referring PA to write new rx. My pulmonary has been out sick after a surgery. I will ask my PCP, but I'm curious what other meds are out there. Thank you
I take Ropinirole which is generic. So far so good. My legs hurt but doesnt feel like i got to move them so much.
Thank you! I wish the same for you and yours SheliaBoone 😊
