10 Warning Signs of Pulmonary Hypertension


If your lips or skin turn blue, it can indicate something very serious such as PH. This is referred to as cyanosis (lack of oxygen in the blood).

“Lips Painted Blue” is an animated series that helps children understand more about PH and why their lips may change color if they have the disease.

    I don’t know if it was PH related but approximately 2 years before I was diagnosed I was very often with cough. Then I started with shorteness of breath and until I mentioned the doctor that sometimes I heard my heart, he started then suspecting something was happening…

    • Dean says:

      I have had a picking cough for years myself, usually when I lie down for bed, heart valve issues. I’m seeing my cardiologist on tuesday, the 13th of December, 2016, to discuss testing for possible PH.

  2. About a year or so before I was diagnosed I had problems with blood vessels in my eyes breaking. I assume it was due to my blood pressure. I, also, had and continue to deal with new allergic reactions to various things that I never was allergic to before. Not sure if it is related, but thought it was worth mentioning.
