Patient :I had a massive pulmonary embolism 4 yrs ago. Post pe I began having a few symptoms of pulmonary hypertension. One year ago u had a heart cathedar that showed my pressures to be normal. I continue to have symptoms and most recently have had 3 severe dizzy spells. Could pulmonary hypertension possibly not show up on a heart cathedar?
Symptoms: Shortness of breath, chest pain upon exertion and taking deep breaths, palpitations, ocassional dizzy spells.
