Pulmonary hypertension (PH or PHTN) is a condition of elevated blood pressure in the arteries of the lungs. Its symptoms include chest pain, breath shortness, tiredness, syncope, swelling of the legs, and a fast heartbeat. When pulmonary hypertension is going to end, people may experience such symptoms:
  • Having a good appetite
  • Reducing pain on the chest
  • Breathing normally
  • Less pain in the right side of the abdomen
  • Being more energetic
  • No longer fainting

I find the answer you gave to the question regarding symptoms of end stage pulmonary hypertension questionable in itself.  That’s like saying that in the case of end stage heart failure, all of those symptoms will go away.  They sure will because the other person will be dead.  
  One can have better control of their symptoms as in both cases but the condition does not end except in death.
In terminal pulmonary hypertension, you have both respiratory failure and right-sided heart failure. Specific symptoms include extreme shortness of breath, chest pressure, leg swelling, rapid heart rate, etc.
