Hello Mr. Hickman, these symptoms don't sound like pulmonary hypertension, pulmonary hypertension has symptoms like short of breath, fatigue, bluish lips, chest pain, these are all related to lack of oxygen. Yours sounds more like a problem with brain.

my comment on this answer is actually a question , im not sure who it will be directed to but the question is … I have been diagnosed with pulmonary hypertension at the moderate level, beginning I suspect during pregnancy in 2007 after passing out several times dneco showed enlarged lft vent. after pregnancy should go away but it didn't next in 2017 I developed high bp after the several events in my life tricled down oner the past 7 years or so. I began anxiety meds over a year ago and went in for bp and swelling of legs and feet and lost consciousness with eyes fixated and could not move or talk after the incident and was completely drained for two days. here now in 2019 I have mitral valve regurgitation moderate, tricuspid regergittation mild. pin hole in aortic valve  and enlarged heart raised my bp meds to twice a day to keep pressure down as it continued to raise. ive struggled with uti often and recently discovered sliding hiatal hernia and ruptuted ovarion cyst with several other formations. and I am forgetful, unable to organize a daily routine, have problems thinking and concentrating. have been refereed to loma linda for possible surgery on mitral valve and referred to neourologist and am due to have an upper echo on my kneck prioe to loma lina. I cough up sticky mucous almost choking on it . what are my options other than open heart surgery and will they even consiuder it with a progressive disorder. I am 44 years old how long do I have and what will I probably actually die from ? should I began a will?
To summarize, your heart problems are related to your pulmonary hypertension. Moreover, you also have other concomintant conditions that are not directly related to pulmonary hypertension, such as UTI, hiatal hernia and ruptuted ovarion cyst.
Open heart surgical repair is the only way to do this. The prognosis for hypertension with heart enlargement is poor. You finally may probably die from heart failure or pulmonary infections. At present, it is not time for you to begin a will. You can do the heart surgery first
Your situation is very complex and serious. I am not sure about the cause of lost consciousness the last time. But it would happen again. You should have open heart surgery if you have the chance, since you are very young. You could begain a will. It's the right thing to do.
