Coping and support

By Mayo Clinic Staff

Being diagnosed with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy can cause a range of difficult emotions. Like many people with this condition, you may experience feelings of grief, fear and anger. These responses are appropriate to the lifestyle changes that come with your diagnosis.

Talk with your doctor if you are feeling hopeless, panicked or unable to cope. It may help to talk with a therapist. In some cases, your doctor also may recommend medications that treat problems such as anxiety and depression.
