Detailed Answer:

Welcome and thank you for asking on HCM!

I passed carefully through your question and would explain that it is important performing a comprehensive differential diagnosis between different causes that may lead to this clinical situation: a cardiac arrhythmia, low blood pressure, low blood glucose, etc..

For this reason I would recommend going to the ER and performing some tests:

- a resting ECG and cardiac enzymes
- a chest X-ray study
- an arterial blood gas analysis
- NT pro BNP levels and a cardiac ultrasound
- complete blood count
- fasting glucose
- INR levels.

Hope you will find this answer helpful!
