Pulmonary hypertension or Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (PAH) is a type of high blood pressure that affects the arteries in your lungs and the right side of your heart.
In pulmonary hypertension, tiny arteries in your lungs, called pulmonary arterioles, and capillaries become narrowed, blocked or destroyed. The signs and symptoms of pulmonary hypertension in its early stages might not be noticeable for months or even years. As the disease progresses, symptoms become worse. Pulmonary hypertension symptoms include shortness of breath, fatigue, dizziness or fainting spells (syncope), chest pressure or pain, swelling (edema) in your ankles, legs and eventually in your abdomen (ascites), bluish color to your lips and skin or racing pulse or heart palpitations.
Some forms of pulmonary hypertension are serious conditions that become progressively worse and are sometimes fatal. Although some forms of pulmonary hypertension aren't curable, treatment can help lessen symptoms and improve your quality of life.
