How do you cope?

In 2011 - My mother dearest passed away from PAH

Now ... I have started to develop the same symptoms as what she had...

I'm yet to confirm that I " Definitely " have it..

I'm only 23 years old, with two children under 5.. how do you even cope with this?

I can only think about leaving my children at such a young age and hardly knowing their own mother..

I know I don't actually know if I have it.. but I just want to tell everyone how strong you all are, and your stories all really touched me.. and made me think how valuable life is and that you can really go through anything in life.

Hello everyone!

Maybe you already know that in the Members section there is a new world map. It is a more visual and fast way to contact other community members.

3 important things:

1) To appear on the map you only have to edit your profile and add the location. If you already have done it, you can also specify your city, even zip code.

2) Unless you have the profile marked as public, the information on the map is only visible for members that have registered to the community. This means that visitors may see the map but not the spots and the links.

3) If you wish, you can also make your spot in the map only visible for your friends within the community. This option can be changed always from your profile.

If you have any question, leave me a comment below!

Mild pulmonary hypertension and pregnancy


Just wondering if someone could help me understand what's going on. I'm 15 weeks pregnant. I was admitted to hospital last Friday with bad chest pain. My blood gasses are low, my D'dimer is high 0.9 reading and my echo came back with a slightly high pressure in the right ventricle 30-40. I had to have a vq scan for a suspected blood clot but it came back clear.

Im not sure of all these medical readings and wondering should I be worried?

Pulmonary Hypertension and Pregnancy

I had an Echo in 2008 which I assume had no signs of pulmonary hypertension or my cardiologist would've said something. I had another one a month ago in December 2016. It showed mild tricuspid regurgitation and some elevated pressure in the aortic pulse wave velocity. Anyways she said I have Pulmonary hypertension. Which at first the OB said 30-50% chance of death at delivery. Then the new cardiologist said it's pulmonary venous hypertension and it's less than 5% of anything happening at all. I've been doing research on pulmonary hypertension but I can't really find too many answers about the different types. And it was my understanding that it couldn't be diagnosed for sure without a heart cath. I have no symptoms of anything. No shortness of breath no swelling in anywhere no anything. No chest pain. Not even with pregnancy. Does anyone have any kind of knowledge when it comes to any of this? I'm 28 weeks pregnant and I would just like to enjoy it.
