Hi-I am new to the HCM/HOCM diagnosis. Just wondering if anyone experiences headrush sensations or pressure in head on exertion?? Should I be concerned or is this normal? Didnt used to experience this. Any input would be appreciated.
My husband experiences dizziness (like. Vertigo) and shortness of breath during exertion
I had a lot of that before finding out I had HCM. Dr's thought it was vertigo….I thought it was low blood pressure. Tests showed I did NOT have vertigo. Once diagnosed with HOCM I did a TON of reading….as you probably will. Disopyramide did help some but over all did not ….resulting in the Myectomy.

My husband had dizziness on exertion which led to syncope (we live at 4500 ft ) for a few months prior to surgery and on max dose of drugs eg Disopyramide and Atenolol he was not allowed to go out for a walk by himself, surgery made an amazing difference. Wishing you all the very best
