Top PPH Symptoms And How To Control Them

Dec 24, 2007
You have been increasingly fatigued, you heart races, your pulse pounds, and it seems as if no matter how much rest you get, you still feel exhausted. As time wears on, these physical signs worsen, but you attribute it to stress or getting older.

Don't.

What you are experiencing could be early onset PPH symptoms. If you have ever taken the diet pill fen-phen, the risk of having PPH is even more likely, and you may want to consider going to a doctor. Be sure to locate one who has a history of performing accurate PPH diagnosis, as this can be critical to your health and well being.

The first step in a concrete PPH diagnosis is an analyzation of symptoms, to see if they have eased, or become more problematic, over time.

Common complaints include pronounced tiredness, swelling in the extremities, shortness of breath, heart palpitations and rapid pulse. Left unchecked, the symptoms can become debilitating, making it impossible to function normally, especially if you wake up after a normal night of sleep, feeling run down. Without proper treatment, PPH can lead to heart failure or worse.

Finding a doctor who is familiar with the disease is critical to PPH diagnosis, so be sure to locate one what understands what they are looking for in regards to PPH, as the disease is well known, but highly misunderstood. After finding the appropriate physician, he or she will run a series of tests that will aid in PPH diagnosis.

The most commonly used tests are electrocardiogram, x-rays, CAT scans, MIR, and the gold standard, Cardiac catheterization, which will measure the pressures on the right side of the heart, calculating the resistance of the blood vessels in the lungs.

Once you have procured a PPH diagnosis, the next step is treatment. Most doctors will prescribe a standard oral vasodilator, some of which can include anti-angiotensin or drugs called Prostacyclin and sildenafil, which is a form of Viagra.

Many of the above drugs and tests are expensive, which is why you have should secure a PPH lawyer soon after you suspect you have PPH symptoms and have obtained a PPH diagnosis.

A PPH attorney should be able to get you the monetary compensation necessary to pay your medical costs, especially if fen-phen is the culprit behind you ailment.

Don't wait! A delay in proper PPH diagnosis can be a serious matter of life and unforeseen heart failure.
