Hi well come to HCM.
If you want to be sure get done your strees test-Tmt and if possible CT-Angio
which will give you confidence and you got to be sure about this as this can not
be neglected in any case. Get done Echo as well some times valvular trouble like
mitral valve prolapse, aortic stenosis. aortic incompitance can also give this. thanks
