(PH) is high blood pressure
in the arteries to your lungs. It is a serious condition. If you have it, the blood vessels that carry blood from your heart to your lungs become hard and narrow. Your heart has to work harder to pump the blood through. Over time, your heart weakens and cannot do its job and you can develop heart failure.
Symptoms of PH include
Shortness of breath
during routine activity, such as climbing two flights of stairs
A racing heartbeat
Pain on the upper right side of the abdomen
As PH worsens, you may find it hard to do any physical activities.
There are two main kinds of PH. One runs in families or appears for no known reason. The other kind is related to another condition, usually heart or lung disease.
Treatments can control
symptoms. They involve treating the heart or lung disease, medicines, oxygen. First you need to find out where the problem is. So get a ECG and 2D echocardiography done and a PFT.
