Brief Answer: Follows. Detailed Answer: Dear Madam, Thank you for posting your query on HCM. Well looking into your problem I would like to tell you that your doctor must have examined you properly before saying that there is nothing significant . Rest if you want to make things crystal clear you get a 2 D ECHO done if that comes normal there is nothing to worry about then . The pains that you are mentioning are very non specific and will be non significant if your ECHO comes normal . Take care. Dr. Shruti
