Has anyone experienced burning and heart pounding with PH?

I have one more question hope this is allowed when I lay down every once in while I get dizzy and go to sit up feel like I am going to pass out. So I make myself sit up then five minutes later I feel fine. Then there’s times I go to stand up and I feel this burning and I mean it’s like my body is on fire my heart is pounding. Then I take cold shower and I am okay. Anyone with this disease experience this?

Sometimes if you're dehydrated, you can feel dizzy. Many of us are on fluid restrictions, but sometimes especially in not weather, you have to make adjustments.
