Thank for asking to HCM
I would advise you to stop the exercise till the diagnosis be made, looking to your history it may be some blood circulation disturbances particularly return of venous blood, keep the leg in elevated position even at day time, drink plenty off water, try some vitamin supplements, it has to come around if nothing bad came out in investigation, be in touch with HCM for further help have nice day
