    Thanks for the advice. I'm in the process of making an appointment.

    Is there danger with maintaining a moderately high hear rate (i.e. 140bpm) for an extended period of time?

      My understanding is that Exercising at an increased heart rate to maintain cardiac fitness is very much accepted. However, the max heart rate that would be recommended for someone with HCM varies with age, amount of medication, diastolic heart function and other characteristics. The goal of your beta blocker medication is to decrease the heart rate and intensity of contraction. This gives the heart time to fill better in light of the thickened and stiff heart muscle.....So that is a great question for your HCM physician. Maybe lighten up on intensity until you get solid recommendations.
