What Are the Symptoms of Pulmonary Heart Disease?

Q:

What are the symptoms of pulmonary heart disease?

A:

There are two types of pulmonary heart disease, acute pulmonary heart disease and chronic pulmonary heart disease. The clinical manifestations differ based on the type of the disease.

Common symptoms include extremely severe polypnea, unexplained anxiety, chest pain and syncope. Patients may experience discomfort in the chest due to ischemia, arrhythmia or palpitations. It is difficult for them to bear exercise and physical activities as the result of the insufficient supply of oxygenated blood. They feel fatigue easily and frequent rest is needed. What’s more, patients may also have swelling legs and ankles, enlarged liver, and excessive fluid in the lower extremities.
