In brief: 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. Generally one should avoid salt and should note how quickly the heart rate raises with activity. Certainly actvities in high altitude should be avoided.
