    Not sure what I can do yet. I was told that I have moderate HCM. I have an appointment with the Cleveland Clinic on April 11th and I hope to find out alot more of what I have. I went from training for my 19th marathon which was to be run on March 17th to currently doing cardio-rehab. I currently feel lost as I went from being a very active person to basically doing nothing at this point except for rehab.

    Good Luck to you and that facebook channel idea sounds great

      The recommendations here are for no weight lifting and no "burst" sports such as soccer, singles tennis, football, basketball, etc. Otherwise, the frequent recommendation is to not exceed your ability to hold a conversation at a normal speed (without becomming breathless). This is different for every perosn. I am far from the guy who posted above me. A marathon? NOT ME !! I have some difficulty walking and talking on a cell phone. So, when I talk, I slow down. I garden, run my house but honestly am not that physically active. But then again, I'm over 55 yrs old.
      Onward and Upward !
