    [is it "possible?"]

    Ok ... this is not meant to sound paranoid ... I am just curious! If one is at risk for HCM/HOCM ... and septum weight/echo, etc is all within normal range(s) ... is it "possible" to exhibit symptoms prematurely? (ie. Fatigue, dizziness)

    Thanks! ~ Erica

    Yes, you can have symptoms of HCM without thickness as you may carry the gene. For those with HCM I can help you get to centers doing genetic testing and then your family members can be screened as well.

    But I would say Erica that it is likley that your symptoms may be related to stress as you have had your share over the past few weeks. It may be stree it may be more...but what ever it is it is clear you need to take care of YOURSELF!

    Best wishes,

    Lisa

    Thanks Lisa! I do need to take better care of myself! Easier said than done! I have to realize that I can't do it all! However, my curiosity stems from sharing some of the same symptoms my father has for at least a decade now! I have always been told that it's probably " stress", "CFS" or "fibromyalgia." I guess anything is possible! :'(

    I would like to visit a center that performs genetic testing at some point down the road since I would like to have a child within the next 3-4 years. Thanks!

    Thank you for posting this information! My email has been sent with regard to my desire for genetic testing. I also sent you and Sharon a personal email for your review. I look forward to hearing your thoughts! Have a wonderful evening and upcoming week! Erica.

    For what it's worth, the first significant "clinical" symptom I had was an abnormal EKG. My echo was normal at the same time. Palpitations got me to the doc to have the EKG done.
