Brief Answer:

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for your question on HCM

I do understand your concern

With such a presentation in my clinic, I would first rule out [generalized anxiety disorder]so to confirm it you may be advised a detailed physical examination to rule out underlying medical condition associated with it. If it affects in your day to day daily life then you need medical treatment, if not then no treatment is required. For mild cases your doctor may prescribe you a benzodiazepines like[alprazolam] and it needs a doctor's prescription.

You can do few things to prevent it in future-:

1)keep a track of your personal life which may help your treating doctor to identify the cause of stress.

2)You can reduce anxiety by carefully managing your time and energy.

3)Try to avoid alcohol, caffeine and nicotine etc if you have these habits and go to sleep in time.

Hope that helps, please let me know if you have further questions before meeting your primary care Doctor.

Thanks and wish you a good health
