Pulmonary Hypertension

Mild to moderate pulmonary hypertension



I just found out the I have mild to moderate Pulmonary Hypertension. I have high blood pressure for years that they said was caused my taking Prednisone for my rheumatoid arthritis.

Can I develep. pulmonary hypertension from my rheumatoid arthritis or from the medications used to treat it?


It is rare to get pulmonary hypertension with rheumatoid arthritis. How was the diagnosis of mild to moderate pulmonary hypertension made - by echo or by cardiac catheterization?
