PH Fact For The Day

For this reason, so many people are often misdiagnosed for long periods of time because they are told they have asthma, or they need to lose weight, etc. Symptoms of PH include shortness of breath (SOB) when doing the simplest of things (like walking down a hallway or getting dressed), extreme fatigue, chest pain, dizzy spells, and fainting.
