Hi there.

The incomplete right bundle branch block seems to be a congenital condition and you need to show him to a cardiologist as he's symptomatic. Hashimoto's thyroiditis, if causing hypothyroidism, then only causes headache kind of symptoms. Fluid retention causes burden on the heart. Hypothryoidism, if any, please get treated properly as it will avoid fluid retention in him. I hope you got your answer. For any further query please get back.
