No pacemaker. That has not been discussed. So far, we've been told that the condition is relatively minor. Of course, one wonders about that. After all, the echocardiogram showed the thickening, and there is the constant symptom of dizziness, sometimes near-faint.
—My medications are Metoprolol (50mg twice daily) and Losartan (25mg once daily). The Metoprolol dosage was an increase which my physician prescribed about three years ago. My question is this: Does anyone her take a higher dosage of Metoprolol (or another beta-blocker)? My most troubling symptom is dizziness, sometimes feeling near-fainting. (A fainting episode ten years ago is what first sent me to the doctor.) Lately, the dizziness has gotten a bit worse. Was wondering if an increased dosage has helped anyone with this symptom.
—Sincere thanks for the info. Will be seeing my physician in a few weeks. We were told some time ago that dizziness and fainting were symptoms of my kind of HCM. In fact, fainting is what got me to the ER on the first occasion, about ten years ago. My wife and I merely suspected that, sometimes, there might be another cause for the dizziness; often, it seems to happen along with the eye-fullness sensation and occasional watery eyes. Was wondering if anyone else with HCM had a similar experience.
