I've just had all the tests and been diagnosed with Pulmonary Hypertension. Fortunately, I have my Rheumatologist to thank for it has been picked up very early on as it is just over the borderline. The base line being 25 and my pressure is at 26. This shows that with a good Rheumatologist who monitors the signs and symptoms it can be caught very early. I am now on Syndenafil and have to go back in 4 months. If anyone out there is waiting to find out don't worry too much. I had myself dead and buried when I was first told that I was being referred and the tests were quite simple and now I know that I can carry on as normal, just take the exercise a little more easily and at my own pace. Thanks to all the staff at the Royal Staffordshire I have nothing but admiration and praise for them all. The porters, cleaners, nurses and doctors are all so cheerful and happy and nothing is too much bother for them and everyone of them is very approachable.
