Pulmonary Hypertension




I have PH but have no symptoms. I now have a cold and my doctor herd me cough and told me that I was having bronicail spasms. I already had the flu shot this year. Can you tell me what bronicial spasms are and does it have any inpact on my PH?


During an infection the breathing tubes (or the bronchi) are inflamed and irritated (bronchitis), which leads to cough and wheezing (bronchospasm).  It should not effect your PH.
