Brief Answer:
please do the following tests

Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome in HCM

I am sorry for your situation and I can understand your concern

As you explain the history if you were my patient I would do some tests for exploring better the lung function of yours as follows :

Chest X Ray
Arterial blood gases
Spirometry test

If they come negative then your lungs are in normal function.

If they come positive then you should probably take medication like inhalers or nasal oxygen depending on the results.

Please discuss with your doctor for the above or if you do them than you can attach me the results and I will try to help you again.

I hope to have been helpful for you

Regards and feel free to ask me again

I ve noticed lately when I am in my office that my right hand is colder & it feels colder than my left hand. I was just wondering if this is indicative of any underlying medical problem?

My blood has been very dark in color lately. I am a bit concerned because I have not changed any of my habits. I still eat regular and as healthy as I can, I guess. I exercise daily and take regular vitamin supplements. I am a 25 year old man and I am bothered by my lack of knowledge in regards to the issue at hand. Please offer any information or insight that you can. Your time and input will both be greatly appreciated.

Thank You

What's the name of the device they always show in movies and shows and stuff where it's a bobbing red line that generate peaks to measure heart rate? Then usually when someone dies, it's just a solid red line.
