I was diagnosed with left-sided diastolic heart failure in January 2022, and later I was told I had pulmonary hypertension too. I don't know much about pulmonary hypertension except that it is not a good diagnostic marker for mortality.
Today we took our grandson to the mountains, about 3000 ft up, and I got pretty breathless and lightheaded. It was a bit of a wake-up call that I need to understand this condition better. Is there anyone else here with the same type of heart issues?
