Thanks for writing in.
I am a qualified and certified cardiologist. I read your mail with diligence.
Your claim of being obsessive with your health does not go with your habit of smoking which can bring in host of disease. Similarly, alcohol should also be taken in moderation. (whereas for smoking it is complete NO). If a recent echocardiography and TMT has been normal one should not worry about RBBB : you can check your TMT record the basal EKG would have shown RBBB in there too! Bout of sweating occurring post nap after lunch is quite normal phenomenon. Good Luck.
With Best Wishes
