Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) is a burdensome condition that can affect physical activity, social functioning, and emotional well-being. Symptoms such as fatigue, shortness of breath, and lack of energy can significantly affect your quality of life.

Although PAH is not curable, there are many ways people living with PAH can make sure their symptoms are managed as effectively as possible. Take this quiz to find out whether there might be steps you can take to start feeling better with PAH.
