Brief Answer:
Other hormones should be checked

Detailed Answer:
Hi and welcome to HCM.

You should check other hormones such as cortisol, aldosterone and adrenalin. All these may have effects. Also, tachycardia(rapid heart-rate over a certain range) may lead to such signs as well. So heart diseases should be ruled out as well as some medications which affects heart.

Let me know if you need any further information.

Wish you good health.
