Ask Dr. Gott 1/25

DEAR DR. GOTT: Recently you had a column regarding a gentleman who described breathlessness, exercise intolerance and faintness. I had these exact symptoms before I was diagnosed with pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH). In simple terms, this means high blood pressure of the lungs.
