Been on inhaled corticosteroids for 5yrs worse breathing issues now than before. Can these medicines worsen asthma/increase responsiveness to triggers?

Discuss with doctor: Limitations for pulmonary HTN could be summarized by "listen to your body". As there are many causes for pulmonary HTN the discussion of activity limitations should be with a physician familiar with the disease.

Theoretically yes bu: Non-selective beta blockers tend to worsen asthma and ideally should be avoided. However you will need to weigh the risk'/benefit ratio of getting another drug to control your hypertension.

What causes hypotension during exercise or during exposure to heat? Not dehydration, thyroid, cardiac, pulmonary, or endocrine. BP normal otherwise.
Vasodilation: Hypotension is by definition low BP and while BP may be normal you may experience lower BP relative to your normal when your vessels dilate in response to a rise in internal temperature. Cardiopulmonary, endocrine, anemia, dehydration and infection are potential causes, as are medication side effects. Note that you can be volume depleted -- with these symptoms -- and not technically dehydrated. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Shortness of breath with minimal exertion activities, not a problem when exercising. Suffer from migraines and GERD. Early 20's and otherwise healthy.
Graduated exertion: If shortness of breath is due to a pathologic process (aka "disease"), it progressively worsens with increasing severity of exercise. If I understand you, you become breathless early on but, when you exercise more, it gets better or at least doesn't interfere (?) - to me, that suggests a "warm-up" phenomenon. This is physiologic, not pathologic (aka "normal). Increasing fitness should alleviate it ...Read more
