HJi well come to HCM.
You can measure your heart beat by counting your radial pulse and if it is between
70 to 90 and regular forget about your heart rate and what you are gettin is palpitations
may not be any significance, could be just out of anxiety. But since you are having
pain as well better consult your doctor and if he agrees you should submit your self for
Echo to rule out MVP, which can give pain aswell palpitation if threre are VPCS with it
due to MVP.{mitral valve prolapse]. Thanks
