Pulmonologist 's  Response
Hello dear, thanks for your question on HCM.
I can understand your situation and problem.
In my opinion you are having coronary artery disease (CAD).
Since you are not improving even after drugs like inhalers, blood thinners and diuretics, possibility of coronary artery obstruction is more.
Your symptoms are also favouring CAD more.
So better to consult cardiologist and get done
1. Stress test
2. Coronary angiography to rule out CAD.
If all these are normal then get done PFT ( pulmonary function test ) to rule out bronchitis.
I find this answer helpful
