Sometimes It's PH!

Shortness of breath.

Extreme fatigue.

Dizziness.

Chest pain.

Swelling of the arms, legs, ankles, or abdomen (edema).

These are symptoms of so many conditions. Doctors usually consider asthma, COPD, and being overweight right off the bat when a patient complains of these symptoms.

BUT!!

Sometimes it's PH!! Doctors really need to start including PH as part of the list of conditions to consider when a patient is having these symptoms! To find out more about this new awareness campaign that the PHA started this year, especially geared toward medical professionals, please go HERE!!
