I had an ECHO and it showed that I have mild to moderate Pulnonary hypertension. I had plursery that was caused by my RA. But since the pain from the plursery is gone I have developed a dry cough and it has lasted for 4 week so far. It is like the normal cough that I get from my ACE Inhibitors but it don`t usualy last this long. That cough comes for a few day and then goes for a few days. I am waiting to see a cardiologist about my PH and further testing. Is cough common with PH with no other symptoms?
Cough is not a common manifestation of pulmonary hypertension, but it has been reported.
