Thanks for posting your query.
A borderline LVH- left ventricular hypertrophy is seen due to mild hypertension or an increased cardiac workload. It is suggestive of an increase in cardiac muscle size due to the increased work load.
The increase in heart beat after a meal or exercise is a normal physiological variation and is not suggestive of any pathology. You can get an ECG done to detect any heart rate rhythm disorders.
The difficulty in breathing s a worrisome finding and needs a further evaluation by a cardiologist.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
Dr. Praveen Tayal.
