In brief: Who knows?

It may develop with normal bp or possibly with nightly high blood pressure (non dipper) check with your doc how to fix it.

In brief: Hypertrophy

Hypertrophy is most commonly from years of untreated high blood pressure.
However, there are genetic causes that abound, and a potential that the cause of your plumonary fibrosis has affected your heart as well.
