Excellent job to you, @colleensteele, and @dawnt. Advocating for ourselves or loved ones come after a bit of practice.
I was diagnosed with anemia and asthma, later find out it was PH. I also did not stop and kept reaching out to doctors, etc. as the symptoms continued. It is sad just how many are misdiagnosed. Some have been misdiagnosed for 10 plus years!
What do you think has helped these issues decrease? I would say awareness, research, and better education about PH.
