Pulmonary: hypertension is not usually a borderline or fluctuating diagnosis. In addition, the Right sided pressures are often significantly influenced by the hydration status of the patient. You need to discuss these concerns with your health care provider who has all of your health history available to determine if this is something significant for you or not.
