Cardiologist Dr. Naresh Ruparelia's  Response
HI well come to HCM.
No short ness of breath is not sign for HBP. In HBP in spite of severe HBP there may
not be any symptoms, abd at times they are diagnose on routine check up and pt is
not aware of it. Symptoms observed are occipital headach, unesyness, at times
dizziness, fatigue etc. Take care. thanks
