I also have HOCM with a septal thickness of 3.2 cm.  I am 26 years old and was diagnosed at the age of 15.  I take metoprolol 50mg twice a day.  Do you take metoprolol er or just metoprolol?  Don't be scared, jus know that you need to do what you can to be healthy.  I had and internal cardiac defibrillator implanted 2.5 years ago and it gives me more comfort.  A lot of the worry I had came from knowing I could have a deadly arrythmia at anytime, so once I got the ICD I felt much more at ease.  My father had passed away when he was 41 from vent. fibrillation, so that also put me at high risk.  Just learn all you can about the condition and talk to your doctor about arrythmias and what you can do .
