Thank for choosing HCM, you have done your Angiography six years ago which is pretty old one, your diastolic pressure increased which is really concern, your symptoms of SOB is of course could be because of gastric reflexes, but it should be ruled out as early as possible, you do certain test,, EKG,,, stress test,,, if turn +ve then go for high tech CT angio, consult to cardiologist and discuss it with him, be in touch with HCM, Good luck.
