Hi, I am a 26-year-old male, height 5 feet 10 inches, weight 82 kg. For the past two months I have been experiencing shortness of breath. I used to smoke, but quit about 6 months ago. One month ago I consulted a cardiologist regarding this and had an ECG, Echo, and blood work.

Medical history: Intestinal obstruction surgery in 2008

ECG result:

1. Suspected left ventricular hypertrophy.

2. ST- segment elevation (anterior)

As the ECG was abnormal the doctor did an echo and the findings were normal.

Echo Result:
LVID> 26/40
IVS> 15/13
PW> 15/10
EF>66%
LA 33
AO 28

Mitral Valve
DE 20
EF>0.13mm/sec

Doppler Flow

AO systolic> 1.30M/sec
Mitral E/A 0.78/0.88 M/sec

Blood Work: Normal thyroid function and lipid profile.

The cardiologist told me everything is normal, but still I am experiencing shortness of breath even at rest so I would like to clear these doubts:

1. Is the thickness of my left ventricle normal?

2. The ECG showed ST-segment elevation. Based on echo results does it mean that I still have an elevated ST-segment. If yes, then should I be concerned about it?

3. These tests were done a month ago, apart from shortness of breath I do not have any symptoms of CHF so I would like to know can CHF occur suddenly? It would be greatly appreciated if you will clear these doubts of mine. Thank you so much.
