In brief: Short of breath

The initial symptoms include shortness of breath at exertion which can progress to shortness of breath at rest.
Other symptoms can include chest pain and dizziness. In the more advanced stages of the disease the patient will notice leg swell, water retention, rapid heart rates.

In brief: PH symptoms

High blood pressure in the lungs is called pulmonary hypertension (ph) or pulmonary arterial hypertension (pah).
Idiopathic or primary pah has no known cause. Symptoms are non-specific and often include shortness of breath, chest discomfort, light headedness, and even exertional fainting.
