LVH : Yes, EKG is not very accurate for LVH, and the criteria are different for people in their 30s... The LVH on your EKG was probably an automatic read by a computer. If there is concern for LVH, an Echocardiogram would be definitive

Raise head of bed: Nocturnal urinary frequency may be seen in POTS, and may worsen symptoms. Try raising the head of bed by at least 30-45 degrees

Many causes: Difficulty in breathing is a symptom that has many causes. You may have normal oxygenation, but have narrowed airway (as in asthma), a lung infection or a heart condition, all of which could cause the same symptoms. Have a checkup with your doctor
