HI
Well come to HCM
From the all history given here I could say that certain test are there that are and that need to be done and these are X-ray study of chest, serum Widal test, ESR, till then just Tab Acetaminophen can be given in febrile condition, that is the advise I could give, otherwise in such case clinical examination is must, for a clinical diagnosis, hope this helps.
